Peter Frampton Band Tries Its Hand at ‘Georgia On My Mind,’ Off New Album Out 6/7 — Listen

0

All Blues, the new album from Peter Frampton Band tackling the classic blues/rock songbook, will be released on June 7 — so it’s just a week away. Pre-order a copy of the album now at this link.

On Friday, Frampton premiered the group’s rendition of “Georgia On My Mind,” the standard song covered by the likes of Ray Charles, Willie Nelson and many more. Hear the tender instrumental version below:

Said Frampton of his new cover:

“It’s the standard. I’ve heard Ray Charles kill it, I’ve heard Steve Winwood kill it and I would never attempt to sing this song. There’s just too many great versions by so many great singers. I decided we would do this song as an instrumental. It’s turned out to be a highlight on this record and just shows the versatility of the band.”

B.B. King’s “The Thrill Is Gone” is another song featured on the record, and was premiered recently as well:

All Blues was recorded by Frampton with his longtime touring band, Adam Lester (guitar/vocals), Rob Arthur (keyboards/guitar/vocals) and Dan Wojciechowski (drums).

Said Frampton of the project in the official news release:

“I have always loved to play the blues. When we formed Humble Pie, the first material we played together was just that. For the last two summers I had been playing a handful of blues numbers every night on stage with Steve Miller Band. I enjoyed this immensely and it gave me the idea of doing an ‘All Blues’ album live in the studio with my band. We started the resulting sessions 9 days after coming off the road last year. Over a two-week period, we recorded 23 tracks, all live in the studio. The energy of these tracks is completely different from building a track one instrument at a time. With this recording, we pay tribute to all the original artists who invented this incredible music. I hope you can hear and feel our enjoyment. I’m not sure if you can say we had fun playing the blues. But we definitely did.”

This news comes on the heels of Frampton announcing his diagnosis of a degenerative muscle disease, which was a large factor in his decision for his upcoming tour to be his last formal tour.

Here’s the track listing for All Blues, followed by the tour dates — which will find Frampton sharing the stage with Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience and his son, Julian Frampton, on select dates.
