    Bob Seger will wrap up his current tour this weekend, and he is mulling returning to the road in the fall because "there are so many places we didn't play." "I must admit we are kind of glancing at the fall," Seger told "We didn't play anywhere in Pennsylvania, Virginia, South Carolina, Florida, Kentucky... I could go on and on. There were states we never even got to... And it's going so well and everybody is so positive on it, we are considering maybe two months, like late October to late December, just before Christmas." Meanwhile, after this tour wraps, he will take "about a month" off before getting back to work on a new album.

Re:(disc)overed features 11 songs that Puddle of Mudd recorded with producer Bill Appleberry at the Bomb Shelter in Los Angeles, a studio owned by Stone Temple Pilots drummer Eric Kretz. A cover of the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" will be the first single, and it will be serviced to radio in mid-June. The album also includes renditions of Free's "All Right Now," Bad Company's "Shooting Star," Neil Young's "Old Man," Led Zeppelin's "D'yer M'ker" and Elton John's "Rocket Man." "Since we started we've been non-stop -- make a record, go on tour, then right into rehearsals and the next record, then back on tour," guitarist Paul Phillip told "We were really burned out, and when we started trying to write again it just wasn't time yet. And we had been doing (AC/DC's) 'TNT' and (the Steve Miller Band's) 'The Joker' and had so much fun with those that one thing led to another and we decided to make a covers record. It was just something fun to do, and we had a blast."
