Bryan Adams has just released a new book of photography called Exposed, but he hasn't closed the book on his day job. He says he "just cut 30 songs. Hopefully there's a record in there somewhere. It's rockin'. It's better to over-cut and see what you've got -- then you step away for a month or two and come back and listen to it."

Helping him the studio was producer Bob Rock, who co-produced his 1998 album On a Day Like Today, and David Foster, who wants to sign Adams to his 143 Records label. No word yet on when we'll hear some of the new tunes.

Adams starts a four-city West Coast tour on October 13th in Thousand Oaks, California.
