Get Up is Adam’s 13th studio album and contains 13 songs, nine of which are new originals plus four acoustic tracks. The majority of the album was written by Adams and long-time collaborator Jim Vallance and was also produced by Jeff Lynne of ELO. The first single released was a video for “Brand New Day” featuring popular British actress Helena Bonham Carter. The second video released was “You Belong to Me,” filmed in Adams’ black and white style of photography.
Adams garnered North American attention with the release of his album Cuts Like a Knife and achieved major fame with 1984’s followup release Reckless, which featured popular hits like “Run to You,” “Summer of ’69” and “Heaven.” Last September, Adams performed at CMAC during the summer concert series in support of the 30th anniversary release of Reckless, and he played many fan favorites, including the popular theme songs “All For Love” from The Three Musketeers (1993) and “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You” from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991).
