Jeff Beck has unveiled the tracklisting and cover art for his forthcoming album, “Loud Hailer.”
Due July 15 on CD, digital and vinyl, the guitarist produced his first record in six years with Filippo Cimatti.
Beck says Loud Hailer – another name for a megaphone – is the right title for his latest studio recording.
“I really wanted to make a statement about some of the nasty things I see going on in the world today,” he explains, “and I loved the idea of being at a rally and using this loud device to shout my point of view.”
The set sees Beck teamed with singer Rosie Bones, guitarist Carmen Vandenberg, bassist Giovanni Pallotti and drummer Davide Sollazzi.
Bones handles vocals on nine of the 11 songs on “Loud Hailer”, which is rounded out by a pair of signature Beck instrumentals: “Pull It” and “Edna.”
The album’s first single, “Live In The Dark”, will be issued soon.
Beck will launch a series of summer US dates at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY on July 19.
