Peter Frampton, who is preparing embark on his farewell tour across the ocean next month, said his upcoming record, which is a follow-up to last year’s Frampton Forgets the Words, will be “the album that should have followed Frampton Comes Alive!.
Frampton told Ultimate Classic Rock he will be writing all the songs for the record, the first time he’ll be doing so since his 1975 album Frampton.
“I’m not saying there won’t be one cover, but there would not be more,” Frampton told UCR. “[The next album] will be all me, my own music, all written on my own, like I wrote [1972 solo debut] Wind of Change – come hell or high water.”
“I enjoy co-writing and have done it for ages with various different people, and I always enjoy it. But I think when I wrote on my own, it’s much more unique and … uniquely me,” he added. “I might do things in writing a song that other people would say, ‘Oh, no, you don’t want to do that. We shouldn’t go there,’ but on my own, I can be like, ‘Uh-uh, I’m going there.”
Frampton has not yet given a release date for his next album.
“I don’t know when I’m gonna finish it,” he said. “There’s no rush. I’m taking my time. I want every track to be something that gives me goose-bumps and I go, ‘I’m proud of that.’ There’s not gonna be any filler on it. It’s gonna be the best that I can do, and I’m very excited about it. I’ve got some great material. But this one might take a little longer.”
