Eric Clapton is set to release his new studio album 'Old Sock' on March 25th.
One of rock's most iconic guitarist, Eric Clapton has little left to prove. However, are we alone in thinking that an album titled 'Old Sock' isn't going to be the most enticing thing in his back catalogue?

Released on his own Bushbranch label, 'Old Sock' contains an appearance from Sir Paul McCartney while JJ Cale - the musician who originally wrote 'Cocaine' - drops past for a run through 'Angel'.
Other guest appearances include Steve Windwood, disco diva Chaka Khan and drummer Jim Keltner - who performs on 'Our Love Is Here To Stay'.
