Jeff Beck Announces New Studio Album, Additional U.S. Tour Dates

Publish date:

It looks like Jeff Beck will have a very busy summer.

This morning, the guitarist announced a new studio album, which will be released July 15. The disc, which is still untitled (at least as far as we know), is the followup to 2010's Emotion & Commotion.

He's also announced serveral additional U.S. tour dates—co-headlining with Buddy Guy—all of which you can check out below.

The guitarist also will publish his first book, which will focus on his twin inspirations—hot rodding and guitars—on July 12. The London-based Genesis Publishing Group will release BECK01 as a “signed, limited-edition” book.  

“Right from the beginning, I've tried to do something with anything I've got hold of," Beck said. "At age 13, I built two or three of my own guitars. I painted the frets on. It was fun just to look at it and hold it… I knew where I was headed.”

BECK01 is hand-bound in leather and aluminum with every book numbered and signed by Beck. His handpicked selection of more than 400 rare and unseen photos and items of memorabilia is narrated with an original manuscript of nearly 20,000 words. Included is an eloquent forward by John McLaughlin that begins, “Jeff Beck is my all-time favourite guitarist, what do I say after that?”

The tour will make a stop at the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois, July 31, before heading to Nashville and then making the trek west to Los Angeles. As was previously announced, Beck and Guy will appear at the Hollywood Bowl August 10.
