Peter Frampton has just dropped the new video for his cover of George Harrison's 1970 All Things Must Pass classic, “Isn't It A Pity.” The track is featured on the guitarist's latest instrumentals set, Frampton Forgets The Words, which drops on Friday (April 23rd).
The video chronicles the end of the guitarist's 2019 North American leg, with Covid forcing him to stay home while he misses his family in isolation and watches his European tour canceled. In the end, through the power of the Internet, Frampton slowly gets his bearings once reunited with his son, daughters, and grandson.
Although most fans didn't know it at the time, Peter Frampton played acoustic guitar on most of George Harrison's sprawling post-Beatles 1970 debut set, All Things Must Pass. Frampton admitted to us that although his name was left off the original pressings of the album, it never took away from his pride in playing on the sessions: “There were a lot of people on the record, and I'm sure someone went 'D'oh!' (laughs) I'm sure it was an oversight, but it doesn't matter — because I was there (laughs). I really didn't care about, to be honest, whether it was credited or not, because I knew that I was there and I played on a lot of it.”
Frampton Forgets The Words also features the Grammy Award-winning legend's new takes on David Bowie's “Loving The Alien,” Radiohead's “Reckoner,” Lenny Kravitz' “Are You Gonna Go My Way?,” Roxy Music's “Avalon” and Jaco Pastorious' “Dreamland.”
