Good news for Jeff Beck fans: The former Yardbirds guitarist will release a new studio album on July 15.
This is Beck’s first studio album since his Grammy award winning “Emotion and Commotion” in 2010. No word yet on the new album’s title.
Beck teased new material with last year’s ‘Tribal,’ a song that appeared on Jeff Beck Live+. It also featured another new song called ‘My Tiled White Floor.’
Beck also announced the release of his autobiography BECK01, three days before the new album, on July 12.
The book will explore his “passions for hot rodding and rock & roll,” with the limited-edition title signed and individually numbered by Beck and hand-bound in leather and aluminum. More than 400 new photos and memorabilia are included alongside Beck’s manuscript.
Beck has also added more dates in the US this summer, co-headlining with blues legend Buddy Guy.
