Peter Frampton Announces Instrumental Covers Album ‘Frampton Forgets The Words’

Peter Frampton announced Friday that his new album, Frampton Forgets the Words, will be released on April 23 via UMe.

The album features instrumental tributes to some of Frampton’s favorite songs and is the follow up to his 2007 Grammy Award-winning instrumental album, Fingerprints.

The rock star also shared a video for its first track, the band’s cover of Radiohead‘s “Reckoner.”

Frampton Forgets the Words was co-produced by Frampton and Chuck Ainlay, and was recorded/mixed at Frampton’s own Studio Phenix in Nashville.

With his infamous 1954 Les Paul Phenix, which was lost in a plane crash in 1980 and recovered more than 30 years later, Frampton brings virtuosic guitar playing to songs by David Bowie, George Harrison, Stevie Wonder, Lenny Kravitz and more.

Speaking about his new album, Frampton said, “This album is a collection of ten of my favorite pieces of music. My guitar is also a voice and I have always enjoyed playing my favorite vocal lines that we all know and love.”

“These tracks are my great band and me paying tribute to the original creators of this wonderful music. So much fun to do and I really hope you enjoy it too,” he added.
