The singer and guitarist Peter Frampton, who is currently busy working on his Finale – The Farewell Tour, talks about his next record.
He described it as “the album that should have followed Frampton Comes Alive!” Fans are expected to enjoy a set of original songs written entirely by Frampton himself. He promised:
“The next album will be all me, my own music, all written on my own, like I wrote 1972 solo debut Wind of Change – come hell or high water.
“I enjoy co-writing and have done it for ages with various different people, and I always enjoy it. But I think when I wrote on my own, it’s much more unique and … uniquely me. I might do things in writing a song that other people would say, ‘Oh, no, you don’t want to do that. We shouldn’t go there,’ but on my own, I can be like, ‘Uh-uh, I’m going there.”
In spite of that, there’s one thing Frampton cannot guarantee as of this time, the release date. When asked if there is already a target date on this project, he said:
“I don’t know when I’m gonna finish it”. Frampton added, “There’s no rush. I’m taking my time. I want every track to be something that gives me goosebumps and I go, ‘I’m proud of that.’ There’s not gonna be any filler on it. It’s gonna be the best that I can do, and I’m very excited about it. I’ve got some great material. But this one might take a little longer.”
Right now, Frampton is more focused on his upcoming shows which will play eight dates in six countries starting November 5. The singer also noted that his inclusion-body myositis disorder has progressed to the point where he’ll have to play seated. He assured:
“As much as I’d like to leap across the stage, it would be a leap too far.
“The way I look at it is, Until I’ve only got two fingers left, I’m OK because jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt had only two fingers. So, we’re OK.”
