Meat Loaf just released a new album yesterday (May 11) titled "Hang Cool Teddy Bear".  For the new album, Meat Loaf’s creativity was sparked by working with a new collaborator, Rob Cavallo, a lifelong Meat Loaf fan who has worked with some of the most explosive names in rock music: Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Paramore and Fleetwood Mac.

“I wanted it big, I wanted it dramatic, I wanted a rock record,” Meat Loaf says. “Yes, it sounds like a Meat Loaf record. But it sounds different, too; it sounds new, it sounds fresh. It speaks to you in a different way.”

The first single of the album is "Like a Rose" and the Canadian tour dates can be heard and seen below.
