The time has come for fans of Tom Keifer who’ve been waiting over 10 years to finally hear his solo music. “The Flower Song” has premiered on USAToday.com, who proclaim “has the feel of a vintage Faces cut – a little ‘Maggie May,’ a little ‘Ooh La La’ – with Keifer’s gritty vocals front and center.” It’s the first single from his highly anticipated solo album, The Way Life Goes, due out April 30 via Merovee Records in conjunction with ADA Label Services.
“The Flower Song” will be serviced to AAA radio stations nationwide on February 4, while “Solid Ground” will be serviced to all Rock formats on March 11.
“To me, that song is about how unbelievable it is that you’re able to find that one person that’s perfect for you,” as Tom Keifer explained to USA Today‘s Brian Mansfield. “Obviously, it’s told from the perspective of a guy, but I think it’s true for both men and women: When you find that one person, it’s a miracle.”
The Way Life Goes ranges from intimate, organic, acoustic tracks to driving hard rock. It embraces the blues, rock and country roots that have always been present in his unique sound which has generated the sale of over 15 million records worldwide for Cinderella.
In touring news, Keifer will launch his first-ever solo tour on February 9 in Winston-Salem, NC at Ziggy’s. The 14-city trek of small, intimate rooms is an up-close and personal preview of songs from The Way Life Goes, along with some Cinderella classics. Dates beyond February 28 are currently in the works.
