Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars will be released on DVD and Blu-ray as well as digital formats on June 8. The film delves into Clapton’s private life and career through interviews with the artist as well as friends, peers and family members, interspersed with archival performance footage.
“Listening to music became just as important as being able to play,” Clapton tells Rolling Stone. “During all of those periods of my life, I found new or old music that helped me, that got me through even when I wasn’t playing well or I wasn’t playing at all. It might be Maria Callas singing or the playing of [Delta bluesman] Tommy McClennan. I remember coming out of the smack period [in the early Seventies] – anything I heard would reduce me to tears, especially if it came from the heart. The music from Carousel still does bring me to tears.”
Life in 12 Bars will also be available as a soundtrack, featuring 32 tracks, some previously unreleased. The soundtrack is being issued as a double-CD set on the same day as the DVD and Blu-ray, with a four-LP vinyl edition following on July 20.
