Peter Frampton is a special guest on London's Royal Philharmonic's new album where they reinterpret Fleetwood Mac's monster hit album "Rumours" in its entirely.

Glass Onyon sent over these details: Recorded at the historic Abbey Road studios, this release marks the first time the RPO have taken on an entire album, from opening note to closing refrain.

The roughly 50+ musicians who comprise the orchestra were aided in their quest by the guiding hands of arrangers James Graydon and Richard Cottle as well as very special guest appearances by the legendary Peter Frampton and steel guitarist Sarah Jory.

Released in 1977 and considered the high water mark not only of Fleetwood Mac's extraordinary career but of '70s rock in general, Rumours produced a string of hits including "Go Your Own Way," "Don't Stop," "The Chain," and "Gold Dust Woman."

Graydon comments, "Rumours was such an important album in terms of both songwriting and production. Although we were mindful of the fact that these songs are very well known, we decided to approach the arrangements from a slightly different perspective to make it work in the orchestral world."

Executive producer Anthony Klein remarks, "It was a privilege to work with the Royal Philharmonic, and to have them play and record those classic songs in such an iconic room as Studio 2 at Abbey Road made the whole project even more epic. We now have a fantastic album and hope that it will appeal to all generations."
