Jeff Beck's 2016 is filling up quickly: the famed guitarist has announced an as-yet-untitled new album, a release date for his autobiography BECK01 and additional tour dates with Buddy Guy. The album and the book will be released on July 15th and July 12th, respectively.
Beck began teasing his first studio tracks since 2010's Emotion & Commotion early last year with the release of "Tribal." It appeared on Jeff Beck Live+, which debuted last May and featured another new song called "My Tiled White Floor."
Prior to the live album, Beck announced a publishing deal he inked with Genesis Publishing Group. BECK01 will explore his "passions for hot rodding and rock & roll," according to a release. The limited-edition title will be signed and individually numbered by Beck and hand-bound in leather and aluminum. Over 400 new photos and memorabilia will be featured alongside Beck's manuscript.
Beck has also revealed additional tour dates for his co-headlining trek with blues legend Buddy Guy as well as several solo dates. The new dates with extend the July tour through August.
