Jeff Beck is recording a new album with Rod Stewart, Gigwise can exclusively reveal.

The veteran guitarist, whose new album 'Rock n Roll Party' was released on Monday (February 21), said that he is meeting up with Stewart this week to continue work on the project.

In an exclusive interview with Gigwise, Beck said: ''I'm seeing him tomorrow (February 24). I hope things go well, tomorrow is the crunch day.

“Last week I was in San Fransico to just some recording with my drummer. Then there was one point when it went from Jeff Beck over to Rod Stewart, in terms of the direction.''

He added: ''Immediately I started doing bluesy riffs and a record that was suitable for Rod. Rather than bugger about for a week, we decided to get straight to it and we cut eleven songs and backing tracks ready for Rod.

“We just need to tailor the songs to his voice and then the record is done.''

Beck and Stewart previously reunited in 1985 on a cover of 'People Get Ready' by Curtis Mayfield, and have long been hinting at recording more material.
