Eric Clapton announces new album release

[I’m on with my rock ‘n’ roll pal Kaedy Kiely at 97.1 The River every Wednesday at 6:40 and 7:40 a.m. to talk about the latest music news. Tune in to hear what’s up!]

Eric Clapton might be toying with retirement from the road, but not from making music.

His 23rd studio album, “I Still Do,” will be released May 20. Clapton enlisted producer friend Glyn Johns, who worked with him on the legendary “Slowhand” album in 1977, for these 12 new tracks, Clapton’s first release since 2014’s “Eric Clapton & Friends: The Breeze, An Appreciation of JJ Cale.”

Among the musicians joining Clapton on the album are Andy Fairweather Low on guitars, Chris Stainton on keyboards and Paul Carrack on Hammond organ.

The album’s artwork is a specially crafted illustration of the 70-year-old guitar icon by artist Sir Peter Blake, known for the co-design of The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album sleeve and the art for Band Aid’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” single.
