Peter Frampton has premiered a cover of the classic blues tune, "The Thrill is Gone," featuring slide guitar work from the great Sonny Landreth. You can check it out below.

“The Thrill is Gone” is taken from Frampton's upcoming album, All Blues. Set for a June 7 release via Ume, the album features covers of some of Frampton’s favorite blues songs.

Frampton recorded the LP with his longtime touring band—comprised of Adam Lester (guitar/vocals), Rob Arthur (keyboards/guitar/vocals) and Dan Wojciechowski (drums)—at his studio in Nashville.

“I have always loved to play the blues," Frampton said of the album in a statement. "When we formed Humble Pie, the first material we played together was just that. For the last two summers I had been playing a handful of blues numbers every night on stage with Steve Miller Band. I enjoyed this immensely and it gave me the idea of doing an All Blues album live in the studio with my band. 

"We started the resulting sessions 9 days after coming off the road last year," he continued. "Over a two-week period, we recorded 23 tracks, all live in the studio. The energy of these tracks is completely different from building a track one instrument at a time. With this recording, we pay tribute to all the original artists who invented this incredible music. I hope you can hear and feel our enjoyment. I’m not sure if you can say we had fun playing the blues. But we definitely did.”

Frampton is also set to embark on his final tour next month. Back in February, the guitarist revealed that he had been diagnosed with Inclusion-Body Myositis (IBM), an inflammatory muscle disease that he says will eventually leave him unable to play guitar.
