(Gibson) Fans haven't heard much from the legendary Eric Clapton in 2012, but as it turns out, the guitarist is plotting a big 2013. After all, next year will mark the 50th anniversary of the beginning of his lengthy music career, so there's no better time to hear some new Clapton tunes.

In a post on his official website, Clapton broke the news that, indeed, he has been recording a new studio album that will reach fans' ears in early 2013.

As for live performances, for overseas fans who want to see Clapton live, he also has some U.K. shows booked for May. Those dates include gigs in Birmingham on May 13, Manchester on May 14 and a five-night residency at London's Royal Albert Hall on May 17, 18, 20, 21 and 23. At the live shows, Clapton will be joined by several key players of his longtime backing band: guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, drummer Steve Jordan and bass player Willie Weeks, to name a few. Paul Carrack will also be on the trek. more on this story
