Rod Stewart Announces a Transition to Swing Music from Rock ‘n’ Roll: With “I’m Not Retiring,”

“Everything has to come to an end sooner or later,” Stewart told BBC Breakfast recently.

Rod Stewart is aiming to move away from the rock ‘n’ roll genre, more than 60 years after he began playing music.

In a recent interview with BBC Breakfast, the Grammy winner said that he plans to release a new album in the swing genre soon after his upcoming summer tour.

Stewart remarked, in response to host Charlie Stayt’s observation that “rockstars are performing into incredible ages now,” Stewart said, “I am stopping.”
