Peter Frampton Announces "Hummingbird in a Box" Release and Summer '14 Tour
MUSICNEWS - Hummingbird in a Box, the latest music work from singer/songwriter/guitarist Peter Frampton, will be releasing on June 24 via RED Distribution. The new music was inspired by the Cincinnati Ballet, featuring seven original guitar pieces in Frampton's virtuosic stylings. Frampton composed all songs on the mini-album along with Gordon Kennedy, who also co-produced the recording. The two previously teamed up for Fingerprints, which garnered them both a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album.
The music debuted in April 2013 at Cincinnati’s Aronoff Center for the Arts. Two of the Cincinatti 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 said, “Writing for dance was a wonderfully freeing experience. There were no boundaries. We were able to push the composing envelope,” and Kennedy furthers, “Songwriters and musicians create music to move people. This was beautiful, graceful, and instantly gratifying!”
Following a year of touring, including 2013’s inaugural Frampton’s Guitar Circus, Frampton is back on the road for summer 2014. This time he will set out on a three-part catch-all tour including select solo dates, a co-headlining concert run with Grammy-winning American rock legends TheDoobieBrothers and the return of Frampton’s Guitar Circus. Full itinerary is below from MNN.
