Neil Diamond is back with his 32nd studio album, and despite being in the music business for over five decades, he shows no signs of slowing down. "Melody Road," his first studio album in six years is a mixture of his iconic, sweet guitar-based tunes, as well as emotional anthems that showcase his distinctive voice. SOUNDBITE: Neil Diamond saying (English): "Well, I'd like my fans to say 'he's still got it' and 'better than ever'. That's what I'd like them to say, I don't know what they're going to say, but that's what I would like them to say." The Grammy-winning singer has sold more than 125 million albums worldwide, had 56 songs on Billboard's Hot 100, including 37 top 10 singles, and 16 top 10 albums. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. SOUNDBITE: Neil Diamond saying (English): "I'm addicted to it, I think I keep doing it because people like it too. Reception is there and my devotion to the job is there, and it's turned out to be wonderful." Fans will have the chance to hear Diamond perform the new songs live - he'll be hitting the road for a 2015 tour in support of "Melody Road."
