Eric Clapton is raw and unflinchingly honest as he discusses his career and his turbulent personal life in this in-depth retrospective of the celebrated guitarist, 'Life In 12 Bars', released 8th June via Universal.

Directed by Academy Award winner Lili Fini Zanuck, the release overlays rare archive footage with audio interviews and will be available as a 2-CD and 4-LP set plus digital formats, comprising 32 tracks spanning Clapton's long and illustrious career.

The LP version will be released at the later date of 20th July.

It includes recordings by The Yardbirds, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek And The Dominos, The Beatles, George Harrison, Aretha Franklin, Muddy Waters plus Clapton's solo work, and five of the 32 featured tracks are previously unreleased, including the first ever release of the entire full length recording of 'I Shot The Sheriff', recorded during the sessions for 461 Ocean Boulevard.

Eric Clapton, CBE is an 18-time Grammy Award winner who has received four Ivor Novello Awards from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors, including the Lifetime Achievement Award and a Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.

In his solo career, Clapton has sold more than 130 million records worldwide and in 1998 he founded the Crossroads Centre, an addiction treatment centre on the island of Antigua.
