Peter Frampton is already looking past his upcoming instrumental covers set to his first new album of all original material in over a decade. Frampton has announced the April 23rd release of his latest instrumental collection, titled, Frampton Forgets The Words.
Frampton Forgets The Words features the Grammy Award-winning legend's new takes on Radiohead's “Reckoner,” Lenny Kravitz' “Are You Gonna Go My Way?,” George Harrison's “Isn't It A Pity,” Roxy Music's “Avalon” and Jaco Pastorious' “Dreamland.”
We caught up with Frampton, who's equally excited about that album's followup — his first all original album since 2010's critically acclaimed, Thank You Mr. Churchill: “The next record after this one will be a solo record. The blues album — All Blues — and this one, Forgets The Words, is the Peter Frampton Band. Y'know, we all share in these two. I'll use my band on some of the solo stuff, but I wanna stretch out, just use some different players. The solo record, which will be next, it might be longer than we think, because it's got to be — it's going to be — the best solo album I've ever done — studio one.”
Frampton revealed that in many ways, the album will be a call back to such legendary and beloved early-'70s sets as Wind Of Change, Frampton's Camel, Something's Happening, and Frampton: “This one is really, really important because it's going to be back to, like, when I would do the first four solo records. There will be no co-writes. It's gonna be all me.”
