Eric Clapton has released an animated video for his track Spiral.

It appears on upcoming album I Still Do, which arrives on May 20 – and represents his first studio work with producer Glyn Johns since 1977’s Slowhand.

Clapton recently told Classic Rock: “I gave him a call and said, ‘Let’s go out for a bite to eat just to prove that we’re still mates.’ During that dinner I said we should do something, to celebrate the coming-up of our 40th anniversary. So we booked some time and went in the studio.”

An hour-long TV special on Clapton and his latest work will be broadcast on the day of the album’s launch.

Martin Kielty

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
