Guitar icon Peter Frampton unveiled an exciting new project to fans on Tuesday (which also happened to be his 64th birthday) with the announcement of a brand new album titled Hummingbird In A Box inspired by an unlikely source – ballet.

According to his Facebook post, Hummingbird In A Box features “the original music [producer] Gordon Kennedy and I wrote for the Cincinnati Ballet last year” – seven tracks in all. Earlier this month, Fampton even performed the music live during the Cincinnati Ballet’s spring production that also featured choreographed dances to Frampton’s earlier music.

“Writing for dance was a wonderfully freeing experience,” Frampton said in a press release, according to Ultimate Classic Rock. “There were no boundaries. We were able to push the composing envelope.”

Frampton and his band are hitting the road this summer for a US tour featuring dates with the Doobie Brothers and guitar virtuoso Buddy Guy. Peter Frampton’s Guitar Circus will be making a stop The Hollywood Bowl on August 27th with Buddy Guy.

Billed as “an amazing night of guitar-hero pyrotechnics and gutsy rhythm-and-blues awaits you as Grammy®-winning guitarist Frampton and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, the Real Deal, Buddy Guy set the night on fire with indelibly searing performances.”

Tickets for Peter Frampton’s Guitar Circus go on sale on May 4th. Visit Hollywood Bowl’s website for more information. For full tour dates, visit www.frampton.com.
