Aside from the two new compositions, Old Sock is made up of some of Eric's favorite songs going all the way back to his childhood. Among others, Clapton interprets J.J. Cale and Leadbelly. The album also contains collaboration with Paul McCartney, who sings and plays bass on the track “All of Me.”
Two days after releasing Old Sock, Clapton embarks on a tour which will take him through both the US and Europe. In the middle of the tour, on April 12 and 13, Eric will be in New York's Madison Square Garden hosting the fourth installment of Crossroads Guitar Festival. The festival will include appearances by B.B. King, John Mayer, and Gary Clark Jr., to mention a few.
