Eric Clapton‘s The Breeze, An Appreciation of JJ Cale, his tribute album to his late friend JJ Cale, is streaming now in its entirety on iTunes Radio First Play ahead of its release next Tuesday.
Clapton says, “I would like people to tap into what JJ Cale did –- that’s the point [with this album]. I’m just the messenger; I’ve always felt that that’s my job. I try to interpret things so that the public at large, or at least the people who listen to what I do, will become intrigued about where I got it from.”
In addition to Clapton, The Breeze also features performances by Mark Knopfler, Tom Petty, Willie Nelson, Derek Trucks and John Mayer.
