Out On April 23

Peter Frampton is prepping to release an all-instrumental cover album titled Frampton Forgets the Words, due out on April 23 via UMe. A follow-up to the 2007 Grammy Award-winning Fingerprints, Frampton pays tribute to some of his favorite songs. He previously teased the upcoming LP with the release of his versions of Radiohead’s Reckoner and Roxy Music’s Avalon.

Recorded and mixed at his own Studio Phenix in Nashville, Frampton’s armed with his iconic 1954 Les Paul Phenix guitar which was initially thought to have been lost in a 1980 plane crash but was then recovered more than three decades later.

“This album is a collection of ten of my favorite pieces of music,” Frampton said in a statement. “My guitar is also a voice and I have always enjoyed playing my favorite vocal lines that we all know and love.”

“These tracks are my great band and me paying tribute to the original creators of this wonderful music,” he added. “So much fun to do and I really hope you enjoy it too.”
