Singer Rod Stewart's latest — and 29th — album, released this October, is called Another Country.

From the first notes of his self-written hit Maggie May in 1971, through his five volume American Songbook series, the raspy-voiced star has been an audience favourite, selling over 200 million albums worldwide.

Stewart sits down with Shad in studio q to discuss his latest album, Another Country; how he overcome a years-long writer's block; and what it's like to be a father of eight (including two young children) at age 70.
