Peter Frampton Premieres New Album, 'Hummingbird in a Box'— Exclusive


Today, GuitarWorld.com presents an exclusive stream of Peter Frampton's new album, Hummingbird in a Box.

You can check out the entire album, which will be released June 23 via RED Distribution, below.

The music on Hummingbird in a Box was inspired by the Cincinnati Ballet and features seven guitar pieces written by Frampton and Gordon Kennedy, who co-produced the album. The pair previously teamed up for Frampton's Fingerprints album, which garnered Frampton a Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Album.

The music debuted in April 2013 at Cincinnati’s Aronoff Center for the Arts. Two of the Cincinnati Ballet’s spring production’s segments were choreographed to existing Frampton music—with Frampton and his band performing live—while a third section featured the new composition by Frampton and Kennedy.

Of the project, Frampton says, “Writing for dance was a wonderfully freeing experience. There were no boundaries. We were able to push the composing envelope.” Kennedy adds, “Songwriters and musicians create music to move people. This was beautiful, graceful and instantly gratifying!”

Frampton will be back on the road this summer. This time he will set out on a three-part catch-all tour including select solo dates, a co-headlining run with the Doobie Brothers and the return of Frampton’s Guitar Circus.
