New Eric Clapton Album ‘Old Sock’ Due On March 12th

Eric Clapton will release a new album, Old Sock, on March 12th, marking the guitar icon’s 21st studio record and first since 2010’s Clapton.

Due on his own Bushbranch label, Old Sock will include two new originals – “Every Little Thing” and “Gotta Get Over” – and versions of 10 of the guitarist’s favorite songs from throughout his life. The LP also includes several guests: blues legend JJ Cale lends backing vocals and guitar on “Angel,” R&B singer Chaka Khan sings back-up on “Get On Over,” Clapton’s old Blind Faith mate Steve Winwood plays organ on “Still Got the Blues” and Paul McCartney plays bass and sings on “All of Me.”

The tracklist finds Clapton covering a myriad of styles from rock and blues (Gary Moore’s “Still Got The Blues” and Leadbelly’s “Goodnight Irene), reggae (Peter Tosh’s “Till Your Well Runs Dry”) and jazz standards (“All of Me,” and George and Ira Gershwin’s “Love Is Here to Stay”).
