Jeff Beck to Release New Album this Summer


Story by Cat Badra

Jeff Beck’s new album will arrive right as he hits the road this summer

English guitar great Jeff Beck will release a new studio album this summer, right around the time he’ll hit the road on a tour with Buddy Guy. Beck’s album, which has yet to get a title, will arrive on July 15. The collection will mark the follow-up to his 2010 release, “Emotion & Commotion.”

Beck will kick off his tour with Guy on July 19 in Port Chester, New York, and he’ll say on the road through a solo stop on Aug. 21 in Seattle. The tour includes a concert on Aug. 10 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles to honor his 50-year music career.

Aside from the new music, Beck will release, “BECK01,” a limited-edition coffee-table book, on July 12. The book will revolve around his love for guitars and fast cars, with more than 400 photos and a forward written by guitarist John McLaughlin. Beck will sign each copy.
