Eric Clapton Releases “Old Sock”, Featuring Willie Weeks and Paul McCartney
For his 20th studio album – and first in three years – Eric Clapton decided to change things up a bit. The 67 year old guitarist switched labels, choosing his own Bushbranch imprint through the indie SurfDog label, and recorded an album with his longtime collaborators and friends.
Two of the twelve tracks on Old Sock were penned by Clapton, but this album is much more of a collection of tunes Clapton enjoyed throughout his life, from childhood on, including 1930’s standards, reggae, soul and rock.
Longtime bassist Willie Weeks once again holds down the low end on this album, and Paul McCartney makes a guest appearance on bass and vocals among a large, all-star cast of musicians.
Old Sock is out now, on CD, vinyl and digital formats (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
