Guitarist Jeff Beck will release a new disc on July 15, marking his first studio album since the Grammy-winning Emotion & Commotion in 2010.

The launch of the new album, which has yet to be titled, will extend Beck’s tour dates to more cities across the U.S.

Beck, who is touring with Buddy Guy, will begin a joint tour with the blues legend on July 19 in Port Chester, New York, before hitting Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Michigan.

The tour will make then make stops at the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois, on July 31, before heading to Nashville and Los Angeles. As was previously announced, Beck will make a special appearance at the Hollywood Bowl on August 10 to celebrate 50 years of touring and recording.

In addition to his recording and touring schedule, Beck is currently preparing his first book, Beck01 (Genesis Publications), which explores his dual passions for hot rodding and rock ’n’ roll through more than 400 hand-selected photographs.

Each copy of the book, which will be published July 12, is hand-bound in leather and aluminum, and will be personally signed by the author. Included is an eloquent forward by John McLaughlin.

Last year, Beck was named Beyond Artist of the Year in the 2015 DownBeat International Readers Poll. To see a complete list of winners, click here.
