Here’s your chance to check out four new songs in their entirety from Eric Clapton’s 19th studio album, "Clapton." Read the article to find the player at the end of it … just click on "read more"! The songs are "Run Back To Your Side," "Autumn Leaves," "Diamonds Made From Rain" and "Travelin’ Alone." It will be released on 22 September in Japan, 24 September in Germany, 27 September in the UK and Australia, and 28 September in the US and Canada. A deluxe-version with bonus track is available exclusively from ericclapton.com.
Co-produced by guitarist and long-time collaborator Doyle Bramhall II, the CD features an all star cast of musical collaborations started with the legendary JJ Cale, drummer Jim Keltner, bassist Willie Weeks, and keyboardist Walt Richmond – and the sessions later added guests including Steve Winwood, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Allen Toussaint, and Derek Trucks. Eric has said, "This album wasn’t what it was intended to be at all. It’s actually better than it was meant to be because, in a way, I just let it happen. It’s an eclectic collection of songs that weren’t really on the map—and I like it so much because if it’s a surprise to the fans, that’s only because it’s a surprise to me, as well."
Where’s Eric! would like to thank Reprise / Warner Brothers Records (US) for providing the four track preview.
