Eric Clapton To Release New Album?

Eric Clapton says he still plans on retiring from the road, although he doesn't intend to quit making music. His upcoming tribute record - The Breeze, An Appreciation of JJ Cale - is due July 29, but he tells Rolling Stone he's had trouble lately writing new music:

"I'm just lazy," he began. "When I get to "What am I going to do for that bit?" I stop and turn on the TV. I'm easily distracted. What I've done a lot is written songs, then forgotten them. I put them down as a voice memo, on my phone, then I lose the memo."

He did say, however, that he does have some new, original songs he hasn't lost "on [his] iPhone."

Of touring he noted that the struggle to stay healthy will likely keep him off the road.
