Paging Dr. Springfield

Rick Springfield has found a creative way to promote his latest album, The Day After Yesterday, which dropped this summer.

He’s returning to his role as Dr. Noah Drake on “General Hospital” after more than 20 years.

The “Jessie’s Girl” singer was shopping around for potential guest appearances when his former soap home made him an offer he didn’t want to pass up.

Springfield won’t be singing in the E.R. in his dozen or so episodes, though.

He’ll reserve that for his December tour dates in Japan and a U.S. tour next year.
