Guitar legend Jeff Beck recently announced fresh details regarding his new studio record, confirming plans for a tentative spring release. As the official website reads, Beck took a short break after his tour with Brian Wilson and is already busy in the studio with his new band, consisting of Rhonda Smith on bass, guitarist Nicholas Meier, drummer Jonathan Joseph and Lizzie Ball on violin. "After taking a very short well earned break post his recent tour with Brian Wilson, Jeff has been spending most of his time with his new band (Rhonda Smith – Bass, Nicholas Meier – Guitar, Jonathan Joseph – Drums and Lizzie Ball – Violin) in the studio," the announcement kicks off. "We won't say too much at present. Suffice to say - watch this space - it will be epic!" Apart from the new record, Jeff is reportedly also involved with Wilson's upcoming effort. Beck's latest album, "Emotion and Commotion," dropped in March 2010 via ATCO Records as the guitarist's tenth studio release.

    Wait...tour with Brian Wilson? Was Beck a Beach Boy for a bit and I didn't know about it???
    He says when he was young The Beach Boys inspired a love for songs with melodies in him. I think the tour was a privilege and indulgence for both of them.
    To be fair, Brian's not 'technically' a Beach Boy anymore. Of course, Brian's tour featured more original Beach Boys the the 'legal' Beach Boys lineup at the moment, but hey, legalities ()=)
    So looking forward to this! Was only recently wondering if he would come out with anything soon. Already have tickets for Albert Hall!! DDDD
