DETROIT, Sept. 5 (UPI) -- Bob Seger's 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction put a lot of pressure on his new album.

"It was kind of like, 'Oh, man, now you're in the Hall of Fame -- it better be pretty damn good!'" sayidthe 61-year-old Detroit rocker, who puts out "Face the Promise," his first album of new material in 11 years, next Tuesday. "I don't want to put some dog meat out there if I'm in the Hall of Fame -- know what I mean?"

Seger has been working on "Face the Promise" for about seven years and recorded most of it in Nashville. He wrote 11 of the album's 12 songs, including a duet with country singer Patty Loveless on "The Answer's in the Question," and joined forces with Kid Rock for a rendition of Vince Gill's "Real Mean Bottle."

Seger says he's "80 to 85 percent sure" he'll tour to promote the album, probably in November and December.
