Peter Frampton tributes George Harrison on new instrumental album

Peter Frampton is streaming video of his cover of George Harrison’s 1970 classic, “Isn’t It A Pity”, as the latest preview to his forthcoming instrumental album, “Frampton Forgets The Words.”

The guitarist says the track from Harrison's “All Things Must Pass” album “was the track I could hear playing when I first arrived at Abbey Road to record. We have all been in the same boat for over a year now. Our video lets you into my world of lockdown and possibly yours too. I think we can all relate.”

Harrison included the song on his triple-album package after it had been rejected years earlier by The Beatles; it featured Ringo Starr on drums and was issued as the b-side to the set’s lead single, “My Sweet Lord”, going on become a hit of its own in some countries.

Due April 23, “Frampton Forgets The Words” features some of the rocker’s favorite material.

The project has been previewed with Frampton’s versions of Radiohead’s 2007 single, “Reckoner”, the 1982 Roxy Music classic, “Avalon”, and David Bowie’s 1984 track, “Loving The Alien.”
