Jeff Beck’s first studio album in six years, Loud Hailer, is set for release this month. Combining Beck’s unmistakable tone with topical lyrics, his newest record makes a powerful statement about everything from the love of power to the power of love.
Loud Hailer, another name for a megaphone, is a suitable moniker for an album that isn’t shy about speaking its mind. “I really wanted to make a statement about some of the nasty things I see going on in the world today,” Beck, the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, explains. “And I loved the idea of being at a rally and using this loud device to shout my point of view.”
To help him write the 11 tracks on Loud Hailer, Beck enlisted two young Londoners: vocalist Rosie Bones and guitarist Carmen Vandenberg. Working with producer Filippo Cimatti, the album also features drummer Davide Sollazzi and bassist Giovanni Pallotti. Bones lends her powerful voice to nine of the 11 songs on Loud Hailer, which rounded out by two signature Beck instrumentals.
