Frampton Drops New Album With Summer Tour To Follow

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Following his Grammy Award-winning instrumental album, 2006's Fingerprints, Peter Frampton returns this spring with Thank You Mr Churchill (A&M/New Door/UMe) on April 27, his most personal collection to date. This summer Frampton hits the road on a co-headlining tour with YES.
The 11-song set, co-produced and co-engineered by Frampton, features the legendary guitarist at his most incisive lyrically as he tackles the battles that wage within us and the outside forces that rage around us.

"This album is very autobiographical," Frampton says. "It starts with my birth, which I thank Mr. Churchill for bringing my father back from the Second World War."

Recorded at his home studio in Cincinnati, Churchill is deeply intimate, weaving tales of loss, love and redemption and the lessons learned along the way. Churchill also includes Frampton's reflective take on troubling world events, including the Wall Street bailout ("Restraint") and even the tragic case of Megumi Yokota, a Japanese girl kidnapped more than 30 years ago by North Korea ("Asleep At The Wheel").
