Albert Hammond’s words and music flow through more than half a century of modern popular music. From his earliest hits “It Never Rains in Southern California” and “The Free Electric Band” to his songwriting collaborations on classics such as ”One Moment In Time” (Whitney Houston), “I Don’t Wanna Lose You” (Tina Turner), “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” (Starship), “The Air That I Breathe” (The Hollies) and “Creep” (Radiohead), his presence and influence reverberate across genres and generations.

“Gonna Save The World” is the latest single and video from Hammond’s forthcoming new album, Body of Work, his first new album of original material in almost 20 years to be released on March 1st, 2024, on earMUSIC. Listen to “Gonna Save The World” HERE.

The album was written and recorded between Nashville and Berlin, during a time in which the world had dramatically changed for all of us. As Albert states it was “One of those moments when you see it’s time to retreat from the world. Monks do it… so do writers… it’s a hunger to connect again to the inner person… the one that has the wisdom, words and music.”

“Gonna Save The World” is all exotic guitars, a pulsing bassline and Albert’s knowing, not-quite-world-weary voice, spinning images of modern times and everything within our reach to react and have our voices heard, but the true answer is to “talk about peace/sweet and lovely peace.” That’s how we’re gonna save the world.

Body of Work is a career-defining album that defies categorization and lithely interweaves genres, attitudes, and perspectives. From rock to folk to Americana to rhythm and blues to balladry, from resignation to determination to loss to recovery to looking back to seeing hope for the future, Body of Work is Albert drawing on 50 years of expressing the human condition through music. It’s a fully connected and considered vision of the world from the angle of an accomplished artist seeking to make sense of it all from his particular vantage point.

“This is the first step I had to take a while back and the album that I call “Body of Work” is what I discovered about me and all of us once I started here,” muses Albert. “Yeah …. I can feel the discomfort and impatience in it. That’s just the honest feeling when the world changes for you from Oasis to desert, from beauty to chaos …freedom to fences.”

From gutsy opener “Don’t Bother Me Babe” through the wistful “Looking Back” and closing with the reflective “Goodbye LA,” Body of Work is an album for the ages, crafted with 50 years of words, experience, and wisdom.

“I’m glad I made it back. I hope it helps you not to feel alone…really.” – Albert Hammond
