(The Blues) Eric Clapton included a version of blues standard I'll Be Seeing You on his album I Still Do in case it's his final release, he's said. The 71-year-old has been considering retirement for some time, and he's already put an end to his days of large-scale touring because he doesn't enjoy travelling any more.

Clapton tells the Chicago Tribune: "I love the song and I love the sentiment. It's one of those things that's been haunting me. Just in case I don't cut another record, this is how I feel. I kind of might be saying goodbye - but I've been doing that for a while."

I Still Do is his first studio project with producer Glyn Johns since 1977's Slowhand. But Clapton had to contend with a serious skin issue just as work began.

"I had full-body exzema and it ended up on my hands," he recalls. "It was a nightmare. I started thinking it was psychosomatic - that maybe I was nervous. And maybe I was." Read more here.
