Eight-Time Grammy® Award Winner Jeff Beck's First New Studio Album
In Six Years Set For Release From Atco On July 15

This Summer, Beck Will Also Release His New Book BECK01, Tour With
Buddy Guy, And Lead A Special Career-Spanning Concert At The Hollywood Bowl

LOS ANGELES – On Jeff Beck's forthcoming studio album LOUD HAILER, his
first in six years, the legendary guitarist combines fluid fretwork
with topical lyrics to make a powerful statement about everything from
the love of power, to the power of love. LOUD HAILER will be available
on Atco Records, an imprint of Rhino Entertainment, on July 15 on CD
($18.98), LP ($21.98), and digitally.

Loud hailer, which is another name for a megaphone, is a suitable
moniker for an album that isn't shy about speaking its mind. The
two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer explains: "I really wanted to
make a statement about some of the nasty things I see going on in the
world today, and I loved the idea of being at a rally and using this
loud device to shout my point of view." The album's first single, the
riotous rocker "Live In The Dark," will be unleashed soon.

To help him write the 11 tracks on LOUD HAILER, Beck enlisted two
fierce young females from London: singer Rosie Bones and guitarist
Carmen Vandenberg. It was a chance meeting with Vandenberg last year
at a birthday party for Queen drummer Roger Taylor that eventually led
to the trio's collaboration. "She invited me to one of their shows,
and I was blown away," the guitarist recalls. "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."

Beck produced LOUD HAILER with Filippo Cimatti, who also works with
Rosie and Carmen. In addition to the core trio, the album also
features drummer Davide Sollazzi and bassist Giovanni Pallotti, who
were both recruited by Cimatti.

Bones lends her powerful voice to nine of the 11 songs on LOUD HAILER,
including the intense album opener "The Revolution Will Be Televised,"
the reflective ballad "Scared For The Children," the funk infused
"O.I.L." and the tranquil album closer "Shrine." The album is rounded
out by two signature Beck instrumentals in "Pull It" and "Edna."

A few days after the album's release, Beck will launch a summer tour
of the U.S. with blues legend Buddy Guy. And on August 10, Beck, with
special guests to be announced shortly, will make his Hollywood Bowl
debut for a very special, career-spanning concert that celebrate 50
years of 'dynamic music making.' "It will be head teacher Beck in a
gown and mortar board in front of the class giving everyone a history
lesson," he jokes. The show will also include an orchestra.

Over the course of Beck's illustrious 50-year career, the trailblazing
guitarist has earned many accolades. He has twice been inducted into
the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. First, as a member of the Yardbirds in
1992 and then again, as a solo artist, in 2009. Rolling Stone ranked
him as one of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" and he has
earned a total of eight Grammy Awards during his long career. In
addition, Beck has been a guest performer at scores of sessions with
everyone from Stevie Wonder and Buddy Guy to Tina Turner and Mick
Jagger. Throughout his career, Beck routinely makes the fantastically
difficult sound effortless.

In addition to recording LOUD HAILER, Beck has been hard at work on
his first official book, BECK01 (Genesis Publications,
jeffbeckbook.com). Available on July 12, this signed, limited edition
book explores Beck's passions for hot rodding and rock 'n' roll.

Inspired by the sleek curves, luxurious finish and iconic imagery of
the hot rods he builds, BECK01 is hand-bound in leather and aluminum
with every book numbered and personally signed by the author, Jeff
Beck. The guitarist's handpicked selection of more than 400 rare and
unseen photographs and items of memorabilia is narrated with an
original manuscript of nearly 20,000 words, making BECK01 the
definitive visual and historical record of the dynamic musician.
Included is an eloquent forward by John McLaughlin that begins, "Jeff
Beck is my all-time favourite guitarist, what do I say after that?"
