Mercury Studios will release a new “live” lockdown recording from Eric Clapton this fall.
The company is scheduled to release The Lady in the Balcony: Lockdown Sessions Nov. 12. The recording will feature 17 songs performed by Clapton with friends Steve Gadd (drums), Nathan East (bass and vocals), and Chris Stainton (keyboards). The recording came about as an alternative to the May 2021 concerts that Clapton had planned to take place at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
Among the songs featured in the presentation are updated takes on Clapton originals and new takes on classic standards. Those songs include and are not limited to: ‘Tears in Heaven,’ ‘Layla,’ Bell Bottom Blues,’ and ‘Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out.’ The group even takes on songs from Fleetwood Mac, such as ‘Man of the World’ and ‘Black Magic Woman.’
