Eric Clapton has premiered the animated music video for “Spiral,” a track off his new album, I Still Do. The bluesy number finds Eric ruminating about playing music. “You don’t know how much it means, to have the music in me,” he sings over his signature electric guitar. The video shows the guitarist at different stages of his long career, now into it’s sixth decade.
In the recording studio, Eric improvised the lyrics right on the spot. “I have worked with many songwriters where stuff is written in the studio, but very rarely has an entire lyric come out like that,” says producer Glyn Johns of the song’s “spontaneous” origins. “It completely blew me away.”
It’s one of 12 songs featured on Clapton’s upcoming 23rd studio album “I Still Do,” out this Friday, 20 May.
