Jeff Beck is streaming Live In The Dark, the first single to be taken from his new album Loud Hailer, the follow-up to 2010’s Emotion & Commotion. The album will be released on Atco Records on July 15.

“I really wanted to make a statement about some of the nasty things I see going on in the world today,” says Beck of the album. “I loved the idea of being at a rally and using this loud device to shout my point of view.”

The album was made with the help of singer Rosie Bones, and guitarist Carmen Vandenberg, who Beck met at a birthday party for Queen drummer Roger Taylor. “She invited me to one of their shows, and I was blown away,” he says. “When we got together in January, I explained the subject matter I had in mind, we sat down by the fire with a crate of Prosecco and got right to it. The songs came together very quickly — five in three days.” The album also features Davide Sollazzi on drums and bassist Giovanni Pallotti.

Jeff heads out on a US tour next month (see dates below) and will be celebrated at Classic Rock Awards 2016 + Live Performance in Tokyo in November.
