Peter Frampton set out sometime back to record as much music as he could when he realized his career might be cut short after being diagnosed with Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM) -- a progressive muscle disorder.
In 2019, Frampton released All Blues, a collection of blues covers. And now he’s set for an instrumental covers album.
Peter talked about the progress of his next album:"We're just deciding on when it's going to come out. I mean, the original talk was April. I'm not sure. We don't have a firm date. We're talking with the record label. We don't want to douse the effect of the book by bringing out something else too soon as I once did in my career much earlier on."
The book he referred to is his just published memoir, Do You Feel Like I Do?, and the "bringing out something else too soon" comment refers to the release of the album I'm in You a little over a year after the big success of Comes Alive.
His next instrumental album will contain covers of George Harrison's "Isn't it a Pity," Roxy Music's "Avalon," Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way?" and Radiohead's "Reckoner."
His first instrumental album was 2006's Fingerprints, which won a Grammy in 2007 for Best Pop Instrumental Album.
Frampton has also just released a short video talking about "four things you should know" about his memoir.
