Peter Frampton Announces New Acoustic LP


Peter Frampton has announced a new LP, which will include acoustic renditions of some of his favorite songs from earlier releases.

"It's much more interesting than I thought it was going to be," Frampton tells Billboard. "I thought, 'Well, I'll just go into the studio and I'll whip off 10 or 11 of my songs just the way I wrote them.' So I sat down and I started singing them; when I started first listening to them they all sounded like they were on stage, without the band. It's just the way I've been doing these songs for 40 years, some of them."

The tracklist is made up of nine re-recorded tracks, including "Do You Feel Like We Do," "Lines on My Face" and "Sail Away," along with one new song, which he chose to do in hopes of taking a different approach.

"I want as if you'd come up to the hotel before the show and we were talking and I'd be, 'Hey, I've got this new song 'Lines on My Face' I want to play you,' and I sit on the bed and I pull out an acoustic and I play it to you," he explained. "That's the quality I'm shooting for."

Frampton hopes to have the new LP out before the end of the year.
