JEFF BECK ANNOUNCES NEW STUDIO ALBUM AVAILABLE JULY 15

NEW BOOK BECK01 TO BE RELEASED ON JULY 12 FROM GENESIS PUBLICATIONS

ADDITIONAL SUMMER TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED WITH BLUES LEGEND

BUDDY GUY INCLUDING A CELEBRATION OF 50 YEARS IN MUSIC WITH SPECIAL SHOW AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL

(Los Angeles, CA – April 4, 2016) Announced today, in conjunction with this summer’s U.S. tour,  JEFF BECK will release a new studio album on July 15. This marks his first studio album since the Grammy® winning Emotion & Commotion in 2010.  In addition, more U.S. Tour dates, co-headlining with the blues legend, BUDDY GUY (except where noted below) were also announced today.

As was previously announced, the duo will begin their joint tour on July 19th in Port Chester, NY, before hitting NYC, CT, NJ, PA, VA, MI.  The tour will make a special stop at the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, IL, on Sunday, July 31st, before heading to Nashville and then making the trek west to Los Angeles.  As was previously announced, BECK will make a very special appearance at the Hollywood Bowl on August 10th to celebrate 50 years of ‘dynamic music making’.   New dates, not previously announced, are indicated below.

Over the course of BECK’s illustrious 50-year career, the trailblazing guitarist has earned many accolades.  He’s been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame – twice!  First, as a member of the Yardbirds in 1992 and then again, as a solo artist in 2009.  Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him as one of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and he has earned a total of 8 Grammy Awards during his long career. In addition, BECK has been a guest performer at scores of sessions with everyone from Stevie Wonder and Buddy Guy to Tina Turner and Mick Jagger.  Throughout his career, BECK routinely makes the fantastically difficult sound effortless.

Currently, BECK has been hard at work on his first book, BECK01 (Genesis Publications, jeffbeckbook.com), which explores Beck’s passions for hot rodding and rock’n’roll, bound together in his official, signed, limited edition book. Inspired by the sleek curves, luxurious finish and iconic imagery of the hot rods he builds, BECK01 is hand-bound in leather and aluminum with every book numbered and personally signed by the author, Jeff Beck.  Jeff Beck’s handpicked selection of 400+ rare and unseen photographs and items of memorabilia is narrated with an original manuscript of nearly 20,000 words, making BECK01 the definitive visual and historical record of one of the most dynamic musicians and creators. Included is an eloquent forward by John McLaughlin that begins, “Jeff Beck is my all-time favourite guitarist, what do I say after that?” Indeed.
