Universal Music Group and Eagle Vision, the video branch of Eagle Rock Entertainment, have partnered to release a new retrospective on the career of legendary guitarist Eric Clapton.

Eric ClaptonLife in 12 Bars is scheduled to be released June 8, 2018.  The documentary tells the story of Clapton’s hugely successful career through the use of archived footage and interviews.  Clapton is brutally honest as he talks about the highs and lows of his career and personal life throughout.

The profile will come with a complimentary soundtrack on 2-CD, 4-LP and digital platform.  The 4-LP soundtrack is scheduled for release on July 20.  The 32-track compilation will feature recordings by The Yardbirds, Derek and the Dominos, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, George Harrison, The Beatles, Aretha Franklin, Muddy Waters and Clapton himself.  Five of those 32 tracks are previously unreleased, including a full-length recording of ‘I Shot The Sheriff’, which was recorded during the 461 Ocean Boulevard sessions.
