Releasing in November, the “The Cal” will tribute a musician’s touring lifestyle portrayed through photographs featuring artists including Cher, Iggy Pop, Rita Ora, Jennifer Hudson, Normani, St. Vincent, Kali Uchis, Saweetie and Grimes.

“On the road is where I have been for the last 45 years, because the life of a musician is made up of roads, travel, waiting in hotels, hours backstage,” Adams said of the project’s theme.

Some behind-the scenes images from shoots have been released and show shots of Rita Ora posing in a bathtub and Cher taking a tube of red lipstick to a mirror.

Shots for the calendar were reportedly taken in Los Angeles and Capri, Italy.

The 2022 calendar will be the 48th edition of the project, which took a break in 2020, canceling its 2021 edition to instead donate 100,000 euros to COVID-19 research efforts. The 2020 break marked the first time the calendar had been suspended since 1983.
