LOS ANGELES (AP) – Rod Stewart is about to release an album that isn’t full of remakes of other people’s songs, Christmas music or live tracks. Stewart has not released a song he wrote in 20 years, but that will change with “Time,” out May 7. Stewart says he just lost the desire to write songs but it came back when he was working on his autobiography, “Rod.” Stewart says he wrote the song “It’s Over” about divorce, then he kept getting up in the middle of the night to write more songs. He says he’s never written so many songs so quickly. The first single, “She Makes Me Happy,” is available for digital download now.
