Peter Frampton fans will get to hear Frampton Forgets the Words, the legendary rocker’s second instrumental album when it comes out today.
Frampton, who turned 71 this week, says, “This album is a collection of 10 of my favorite pieces of music," He adds, "My guitar is also a voice and I have always enjoyed playing my favorite vocal lines that we all know and love. These tracks are my great band and me paying tribute to the original creators of this wonderful music. So much fun to do and I really hope you enjoy it too.”
The album will feature several covers including David Bowie's "Loving the Alien," George Harrison's "Isn't it a Pity," Sly and the Family Stone's "If You Want Me to Stay," Roxy Music's "Avalon," Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way," and the first single, Radiohead's “Reckoner.”
Peter talked about picking the songs to include on the album:
"I made a playlist of everything and just sat there with my guitar and my amp and just played along with everything. And the ones that meant something to me or I felt I could do the best tribute to, I felt the most comfortable with, were the ones that ended up. It was just a case of filtering out."
