Jeff Beck has a new album on the way and new tour dates to boot.
The veteran guitarist announced this week that he will release his new album this summer. The as yet untitled album is currently scheduled to be released Friday, July 15th. He will also release his new book Beck01 the same week on Tuesday, July 12th. It will be published by Genesis Publications. The upcoming album will be Beck’s first full-length studio recording in more than six years. His last full-length album was Emotion & Commotion. It was released in spring of 2010. Cover art, track listing, and more information on Beck’s new album will be announced as the album’s release date nears.
Beck01 isn’t just another music memoir. Rather it traces Beck’s music and cars—more specifically hot rods—and will feature some 400+ rare and previously unseen photographs and items of memorabilia. The whole thing is narrated by a nearly 20,000 word manuscript. The limited edition book will also be signed by Beck himself. It can be ordered online via Genesis Publications’ online store.
Both Beck’s new album and book will be supported by a handful of live performances beginning Tuesday, July 19th in Port Chester, New York. Fellow guitar legend Buddy Guy will join Beck on a number of those dates. The tour also includes a special performance on Wednesday, August 10th at the Hollywood Bowl to celebrate Beck’s now five decades-long career. The first leg of the tour is a run of dates in the northeast and runs through July 26th in Holmdel, NJ. On July 27th and 29th Beck will be in Vienna, VA and Canandaigua, NY respectively before playing a pair of dates in the Midwest to close out July. He will open August with a performance in Nashville, TN on Wednesday, August 3rd. A new group of tour dates was announced this week. It includes performances in the Midwest and west coast. The complete tour schedule, including newly announced dates, is available via Beck’s official website and Facebook page. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 8th for all dates EXCEPT Kansas City (available Saturday, April 16th), Seattle, WA (available Friday, April 22nd), and Saratoga, CA (Available TBA).
