Brand new studio album
"Thank You Mr Churchill"

Eagle Records are delighted to announce the release of Peter Frampton's brand new studio album "Thank You Mr. Churchill". The album is released on 5 July 2010 [Cat. No. EAGCD423]. The album was co-produced with Chris Kimsey who produced Frampton's first ever solo album and features guest appearances by the Funk Brothers on the Motown homage "Invisible Man" and by Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron. This UK release includes 2 bonus tracks not on US versions of the album.

"Thank You Mr Churchill" is Frampton's first since his Grammy Award winning instrumental album "Footprints" in 2006. It is a very autobiographical album starting with Frampton's birth after his father's return from the Second World War, as celebrated in the title track. Other tracks relate to his first musical experiences, his relationship with his son and his life before and after finding sobriety as well his take on events around the world that have affected him and his love of Motown. As you would expect his guitar playing is exemplary, perhaps nowhere more than on the 8 minute instrumental "Suite Libert?" which forms the centre piece of the album. Frampton's 40 year career with The Herd, Humble Pie and as a globally successful solo artist has left him with little to prove, but "Thank You Mr Churchill" shows that he still has plenty to offer.

Peter Frampton's place at rock's top table has never been in doubt, his ground-breaking "Frampton Comes Alive!" remains one of the biggest selling live albums of all time, but "Thank You Mr. Churchill" is a fine album that serves to further cement that reputation.
