Jeff Beck has signed an exclusive publishing deal with the London-based Genesis Publishing Group.

The guitarist recently participated in the Poppy Appeal song “No Man’s Land,” a tribute to the people who served in World War I; it resulted in four performances, culminating in NFL pre-game entertainment broadcast from Wembley Stadium. The song featured Joss Stone on vocals.
A DVD of Beck’s April 2014 Tokyo concert was released in November and reached Number 1 on Billboard‘s DVD chart. He’ll also complete work on his new studio album, which is expected later this year.
Beck also has announced several solo tour dates—not to mention dates with ZZ Top. You can find all the current dates below. Joining Beck on his solo and double-bill tours are Jimmy Hall on vocals, Rhonda Smith on bass, Jonathan Joseph on drums and Nicolas Meier on guitar.
