He recently released a “Moon River” cover featuring the late Jeff Beck
Simon Climie, a longstanding Eric Clapton collaborator, discussed the song in an official statement, 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.”
Eric Clapton decided to pair this new version of “Moon River” with a new song, “How Could We Know,” starring Judith Hill, Simon Climie, and Daniel Santiago, for this commemorative 7-inch vinyl release after Jeff Beck passed away.
Climie said, “Over the years with the festivals and albums we’ve worked on, there have been many stunning collaborations.”
