Eric Clapton Announces New Album 'I Still Do'

(hennemusic) Eric Clapton has announced that he will be releasing his new studio album, "I Still Do", on May 20th. The project sees the guitarist reunite with "Slowhand" producer Glyn Johns.

"This was a long and overdue opportunity to work with Glyn Johns again," says Clapton, "and also, incidentally, the fortieth anniversary of 'Slowhand'!"

The follow-up to 2013's "Old Sock" mixes Clapton originals with covers and was recorded with many musicians who have worked alongside the guitarist throughout the years.

The album's artwork - a carefully-crafted illustration of Clapton - is the work of esteemed artist Sir Peter Blake, whose previous art includes the co-design of The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album sleeve, as well as the Band Aid single "Do They Know It's Christmas?,"Paul Weller's "Stanley Road" and The Who's "Face Dances."
