At 71, Eric Clapton reunited with veteran producer Glyn Johns to create his new album ‘I Still Do’. It’s easy to hear (and see): Clapton sounds wonderful. His writing, performance and guitar playing comes straight from his heart and it seems that with every album, his skills only improve. Watch the wonderful interview with Clapton and Johns talking about the new album.
Detailing the new album on his official website, “Clapton has reunited with famed producer Glyn Johns for his forthcoming 23rd studio album, ‘I Still Do’, set for release on May 20, 2016 on his Bushbranch Records/Surfdog Records.
“Clapton and Johns – who has also produced albums for The Eagles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and The Who – most famously worked together on Clapton’s iconic ‘Slowhand’ album. The new 12-track record includes some original songs written by Clapton and some covers. “This was a long and overdue opportunity to work with Glyn Johns again, and also, incidentally, the fortieth anniversary of 'Slowhand’”, said Clapton.
