The Peter Frampton Band has released a music video for their cover of the Roxy Music classic “Avalon.” The song is from their upcoming album of instrumental covers.

The new record, titled “Frampton Forgets the Words”, is due out April 23 and will feature Frampton and his band taking on some of his favorite songs.

Peter had this to say about the Roxy Music cover: “The original is such a perfect piece of music. I really wanted to get as close to the vocal inflection as possible, and I think I almost did. It’s a sexy kind of guitar sound, like Bryan Ferry’s vocals, and I’m very proud of that.”

He said of the covers record: “This album is a collection of ten of my favorite pieces of music. My guitar is also a voice and I’ve always enjoyed playing my favorite vocal lines that we all know and love.

“These tracks are my great band and I paying homage to the original creators of this wonderful music. So much fun to make and I really hope you enjoy it too.” Watch the video below:
