Richard describes ‘Harlequin Nights’ as his bookend to the classic ‘Goodbye Tiger’. The album comes after a marriage breakdown and was spurred on from his new songwriting relationship with Danny Spencer. “The wife moved out which as anyone who’s been through it will attest isn’t an easy time in life, but creatively it’s been one of the most productive with Danny helping me write some of the best songs I have put my mind to for many years,” Clapton said.

The album features a six-minute epic ‘Vapour Trails’ and a party boys nod to Charlie Sheen in ‘Dancing With The Vampires.
