Jeff Beck to Release First Album Since 2010, New Book; Adds Tour Dates With Buddy Guy

by Newsdesk & VVN Music

Jeff Beck has announced that he will release a new studio album on July 15, 2016.

There are few details yet about the album beyond the release date. This marks his first studio album since the Grammy winning Emotion & Commotion in 2010.

Over the course of Beck’s illustrious 50-year career, the trailblazing guitarist has earned many accolades. He’s been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame not once but twice! First, as a member of the Yardbirds in 1992 and then again, as a solo artist in 2009. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him as one of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and he has earned a total of 8 Grammy Awards during his long career. In addition, Jeff has been a guest performer at scores of sessions with everyone from Stevie Wonder and Buddy Guy to Tina Turner and Mick Jagger. Throughout his career, Jeff Beck routinely makes the fantastically difficult sound effortless.

Currently, BECK has been hard at work on his first book, BECK01, which explores his passions for hot rodding and rock'n'roll, bound together in this official, signed, limited edition book. Inspired by the sleek curves, luxurious finish and iconic imagery of the hot rods he builds, BECK01 is hand-bound in leather and aluminum with every book numbered and personally signed by the author, Jeff Beck.

Jeff Beck’s handpicked selection of 400+ rare and unseen photographs and items of memorabilia is narrated with an original manuscript of nearly 20,000 words, making BECK01 the definitive visual and historical record of one of the most dynamic musicians and creators. Included is an eloquent forward by John McLaughlin that begins, “Jeff Beck is my all-time favorite guitarist, what do I say after that?”
