A lot can happen between Bob Seger albums: changes in presidential administrations, a few iPhone generations, a third of Derek Jeter's baseball career. “I’m so fast,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer says with a hearty laugh. Ride Out -- his 17th studio album, and first in eight years -- is a modest affair, touting both originals and covers of John Hiatt, Steve Earle, Billy Bragg and Wilco. With the LP having arrived on Oct. 14 on Capitol, Seger is ready to talk.
Another album that took its sweet time. How do you decide when they're ready?
