Peter Frampton Unplugging For Classic Tracks On New Album
Peter Frampton reveals in a new interview with Billboard that his working on a new acoustic album that will feature new unplugged versions of some of his classic songs as well as a new track.
He tells the publication, “It’s much more interesting than I thought it was going to be. I thought, ‘Well, I’ll just go into the studio and I’ll whip off 10 or 11 of my songs just the way I wrote them.’ So I sat down and I started singing them; when I started first listening to them they all sounded like they were on stage, without the band. It’s just the way I’ve been doing these songs for 40 years, some of them.
“Then I realized this isn’t what I want. I want as if you’d come up to the hotel before the show and we were talking and I’d be, ‘Hey, I’ve got this new song ‘Lines On My Face’ I want to play you,’ and I sit on the bed and I pull out an acoustic and I play it to you. That’s the quality I’m shooting for.”
Frampton also spoke with the publication about his involvement with AxCent Tuning Systems LLC’s Crowdfunder.com campaign.
