ERIC CLAPTON TO RELEASE 19th SOLO ALBUM, CLAPTON, ON SEPTEMBER 28, 2010 FROM REPRISE RECORDS
DATELINE - Guitar icon and three time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Eric Clapton announced today that he will release his 19th solo studio album on September 28, 2010 simply titled CLAPTON.
Co-produced by guitarist and long-time collaborator Doyle Bramhall II, the album features an all star cast of musical collaborations starting with the legendary JJ Cale, drummer Jim Keltner, bassist Willie Weeks, and keyboardist Walt Richmond—and the sessions later added guests including Steve Winwood, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Allen Toussaint, and Derek Trucks.
Clapton created a collection that touches on everything from century-old traditional brass bands to little-known country blues to brand-new originals. The result is both relaxed and revelatory, and unlike anything the guitarist has done in his legendary career.
“This album wasn’t what it was intended to be at all,” says Eric Clapton. “It’s actually better than it was meant to be because, in a way, I just let it happen. It’s an eclectic collection of songs that weren’t really on the map—and I like it so much because if it’s a surprise to the fans, that’s only because it’s a surprise to me, as well.”

Neil Young Feels Le Noise
by Tim Cashmere – August 24 2010
Neil Young has a new album on the way, due to hit stores next month.
Young made the announcement himself on his Facebook page on the weekend, saying the record will be released on September 28 on vinyl, CD and iTunes, with a Blu-Ray version and iPhone and iPad app to follow soon after.
The iPhone and iPad app will be an interactive album cover, although the singer negated the futuristic method of record release by adding “forgive my use of the word “album”. I am old school.”
The album was produced by Daniel Lanois (U2, Coldplay).
