Jeff Beck is to release his first new album in seven years on April 13.
Called ‘Emotion & Commotion’, the album sees Beck team up with a number of musicians including Joss Stone. He also recorded tracks with a 64-piece orchestra, something he says he first experienced on his 2005 version of Gustav Mahler‘s Symphony No. 5.
“It turned out amazingly well,” Beck explained of the album, which features covers of Jeff Buckley‘s interpretation of ‘Corpus Christi’ and a version of ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ from the ‘Wizard Of Oz’. “But I didn’t want to commit to an entire album of classical music. What appealed to me instead was the idea of bringing together these seemingly contradictory sounds on different kinds of non-classical music.”
The tracklisting for ‘Emotion & Commotion’ is:Beck is set to play two nights at London‘s O2 Arena with Eric Clapton this weekend (February 13, 14), and also tours solo in October.
