London, May 18 (IANS) British musician Eric Clapton, who is coming out with his new album “I Still Do”, says he doesn’t like being the frontman all the time.
“I don’t like being the frontman all the time. I do like it now and then. I’ve now just found a way to enjoy it more than ever — I like singing now more than I ever did. I’ve found a way to do it and connect soulfully to what I hear in my head,” Clapton said in a statement.
Clapton, who has collaborated with producer Glyn Johns for the album, says “I Still Do” is a tribute to his late aunt.
“The album is a tribute to my aunty who passed away the year before last. I went to see her when her time was running out — she was getting close to 90. I told her, ‘I just want to thank you for being who you were, and for looking after me when I was a little boy, and a difficult little boy’,” he said.
“She just said, ‘Well I liked you, and I still do’. And I just thought, ‘That’s it’,” Clapton added.
“I Still Do” releases in India on Friday under Universal Music.
