Watch "Golden Ring" From "The Lady In The Balcony: Lockdown Sessions"
Plus, listen to "After Midnight" on streaming services now incuding iTunes and Apple Music.
Eric Clapton returns with a remarkable new release, “The Lady In The Balcony: Lockdown Sessions” on November 12. Available on multiple formats, the 17 songs find EC and bandmates Nathan East (Bass and Vocals), Steve Gadd (Drums) and Chris Stainton (Keyboards) performing renditions of Clapton standards along with an assortment of blues, country and rarified originals. The mostly acoustic set was envisioned to be like an "Eric Clapton Unplugged II," but not quite, as three songs are played with electric guitars. The result became far more than simply a sequence of greatest hits. Rather, it’s one of the most intimate and authentic performances of Eric's entire career.
Overseen by Eric's legendary longtime Grammy-winning producer Russ Titelman, and recorded live at Cowdray House in West Sussex, England, the performance revisits selections like "Bell Bottom Blues," "River of Tears" and "Bad Boy" from Eric's extensive repertoire plus versions of songs that had a profound effect on his career and those of his contemporaries, like the Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac tracks “Black Magic Woman” and “Man of the World.”
Eric’s wife, Melia, the sole outside observer, inspired the title.
