Peter Frampton readies new mini-album
Peter Frampton will release a new mini-album, Hummingbird In A Box, on 24th June via RED Distribution/Sony Music.
His new music was inspired by the Cincinnati Ballet, and features seven original guitar pieces by Frampton, co-written with Gordon Kennedy, who also co-produced the recording. The two previously teamed up for Fingerprints, which secured 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 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 notes, “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!”
