Jeff Beck Announces New Studio Album, New Book, Tour Dates

In conjunction with this summer's U.S. tour, guitarist 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, some co-headlining with blues legend Buddy Guy, have been added. 

The duo will begin their joint tour on July 19th in Port Chester, NY, before hitting NYC, CT, NJ, PA, VA, MI. The tour makes 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.

Beck will make a very special appearance at the Hollywood Bowl on August 10th to celebrate 50 years of 'dynamic music making'.   

In addition to a new album, Beck has been hard at work on his first book, Beck01 (Genesis Publications, jeffbeckbook.com), which explores the guitarist's passion 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 favorite guitarist, what do I say after that?"
