Who doesn’t love free stuff? Especially when it’s coming from one of our favorite rockers!

Bob Seger is gifting fans with a previously unreleased track called “Finding Out”. The song was originally intended for his 2006 album Face the Promise, but he ended up shelving for 11 years when he revisited it for the I Knew You When album.

He ended up finally finishing the song last year, but left it off of I Knew You When.

Apparently, the idea for the song has been around for 15 years. He told the Detroit Free Press back in 2003:

I write a lot of songs that people don’t hear. I just try to take the ones that sound the best — maybe have the best lyric, or the best melody. I really just enjoy the process. I fall in love with every single one of them. I finish Îem all, and I don’t think there’s a whole lot of difference between the bad ones and the good ones. But every now and then you hit something that you really like a lot. Every now and then you’ll nail one that’s really, really special. And that’s what you live for.

I’ve got a ballad on the new album called “Finding Out,” where I really nailed the lyric. So that’s real good. The whole process is a lot of fun. When I have time to do it.

“Finding Out” can be heard in its entirety below. Download the track at

A year ago, Seger offered fans a free download of “Glenn Song”, a tribute to Glenn Frey.
