Eric Clapton will release a new album, Old Sock, on March 12th, marking the guitar icon’s 21st studio record and first since 2010′s Clapton. Due on his own Bushbranch label, Old Sock will include two new originals – “Every Little” and “Gotta Get Over” – and versions of 10 of the guitarist’s favorite songs from throughout his life. The LP also includes several guests: blues legend JJ Cale lends backing vocals and guitar on “Angel,” R&B singer Chaka Khan sings back-up on “Get On Over,” Clapton’s old Blind Faith mate Steve Winwood plays organ on “Still Got the Blues” and Paul McCartney plays bass and sings on “All of Me.” Following the release of Old Sock, Clapton will embark on a U.S. arena tour this spring, culminating with his Crossroads Guitar Festival at Madison Square Garden, which will feature performances from artists including B.B. King, Buddy Guy, the Allman Brothers Band, John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr.
