Peter Frampton has announced the April 23rd release of his latest instrumental collection, titled, Frampton Forgets The Words. The guitar legend has issued the first video from the set — billed to the Peter Frampton Band — which is a cover of the Radiohead favorite, "Reckoner." The album includes the Grammy-winner's takes on Lenny Kravitz' "Are You Gonna Go My Way?," George Harrison's "Isn't It A Pity," Roxy Music's "Avalon" and Jaco Pastorious' "Dreamland."
Frampton posted a message to fans on his social media platforms, which reads, "This album is a collection of ten of my favorite pieces of music. 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."
Peter Frampton told us it was the critical acclaim he received for his 2006 Grammy Award-winning instrumental set Fingerprints that hit the creative reset button on his career: ["As everything happens to me and my career, so far, things are sort of like a germ of an idea and then it, it sort of builds from there. Fingerprints is a huge milestone for me and helped me inordinately accept my career before — for what it's worth — because it was the first independent success I had had that had nothing to do with with (Frampton) Comes Alive whatsoever — and I get critical acclaim for it."] SOUNDCUE (:33 OC: . . . acclaim for it)
