Those who can’t wait to hear Eric Clapton’s new album Old Sock now have something to tide them over until its release next week.
Speakeasy, a blog on the Washington Post website, is now streaming the album in its entirety. The LP, which marks Clapton’s 21st studio effort, consists primarily of cover songs, and also includes two brand new tracks from Slowhand himself – “Every Little Thing” and “Gotta Get Over.”
The 10 covers are a collection of Clapton’s favorite songs, and include Taj Mahal’s “Further Down the Road,” Leadbelly’s “Goodnight Irene,” and the Jazz standard, “All of Me,” on which Sir Paul McCartney can be heard rocking the bass guitar.
Old Sock is due out on March 12th via Bushbranch/Surfdog. Clapton is set to follow the album’s release with a North American tour, which kicks off on March 14th in Phoenix, AZ.
