NEW RELEASES TODAY BY ERIC CLAPTON, NEIL YOUNG, AND RON WOOD

Released today  is Eric Clapton‘s latest collection, simply titled, Clapton. The album marks his first studio collection since his 2006 joint collection with J.J. Cale, called The Road To Escondido. Clapton includes a handful of the guitarist’s old friends sitting in, featuring contributions from Steve Winwood, Derek Trucks, Sheryl Crow, jazz great Wynton Marsalis, and legendary New Orleans pianist Allen Toussaint — with a cross-section of songs rooted in blues folk, rock, and R&B.
 
Neil Young‘s latest album, titled, Le Noise, hits stores as well.  The album was produced by Daniel Lanois (also known for his work with U2, Bob Dylan, and Peter Gabriel). Le Noise is available as a standard CD, vinyl, digital download, and as a deluxe CD/DVD. The DVD portion, shot by cinematographer Adam Vollick, features eight black and white films of Young performing each song solo on acoustic and electric guitar live in the studio.
 

Also out is Ron Wood‘s first album in nearly a decade, called I Feel Like Playing. The set features such high profile guests as Slash, ZZ Top‘s Billy Gibbons, Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kris Kristofferson, Eddie Vedder, Stones bassist Daryl Jones, and drummer Jim Keltner, among others. I Feel Like Playing was produced by longtime Rolling Stones backing vocalist Bernard Fowler.
