He recently released a “Moon River” cover featuring the late Jeff Beck
The longtime Clapton collaborator Simon Climie talked in an official statement about the song, saying: “In January 2022, Eric and I recorded a version which was more of a ballad – and naturally the guitar and vocals were brilliant. When we were happy with the track, Eric asked me to send it over to Jeff. Jeff loved it. And soon after that in the spring of 2022, Jeff added his unmistakable guitar part. It knocked us off our feet.”
After Jeff Beck’s passing, Eric Clapton made the decision to couple this new recording of “Moon River” on new song, “How Could We Know,” featuring Judith Hill, Simon Climie, and Daniel Santiago for this special 7-inch vinyl release.
“Over the years with the festivals and albums we’ve worked on, there have been many stunning collaborations,” Climie said.
