Guitarist Jeff Beck has announced the release of a new album “Loud Hailer”, which will be released on July 15, 2016. This will the first studio album of the musician in the last six years since the release of “Emotion and Commotion’ in 2010.
“Loud Hailer”, which is another name for a megaphone, is a suitable moniker for an album that isn’t shy about speaking its mind.

As for the album title, Jeff Beck declares bluntly that he does not hesitate to express his opinion.
“I really wanted to make a statement about some of the nasty things I see going on in the world today,” Beck said.
“I loved the idea of being at a rally and using this loud device to shout my point of view.”
In the near future he is expected to premiere the first single from the album – “Live In The Dark”.
“I thought, ‘If I don’t change course now [musically], I’ll be stuck with that Guitar World [magazine] thing, and that’s not where I come from at all,'” Beck said at a listening preview of the album. “Even though I’ve been on about 400 of their front covers, I’m not that person.”
