Wilcox revealed in February that her Sunday Lockdown Lunch video series began because her husband, King Crimson’s Robert Fripp, was holding back from performing.
In August, Wilcox released his 16th studio album, Posh Pop, which he previewed with the single “Levitate” featuring Simon Darlow and Bobby Wilcox.
discussing the album in a recent interview with Granthshala, Wilcox explained how it happened. “When COVID shut everything down last year, it allowed me to focus on writing and recording the next album,” she said. “We recorded in Simon’s outdoor studio with just him, my husband and I.
“‘Posh Pop’ was a magical experience created out of the need and ability to make heartfelt contact with our fans. Also the eerie distance between those who run the world and those on the ground inspired my writing.”
She continued: “Working with Fripp in the studio, we handed him the chord charts the day before and said: ‘We want you to come in and improvise and that’s what we’ll use’. It was spontaneous.”
Meanwhile, The Rolling Stones have discussed why they are not playing their hit ‘Brown Sugar’ on their current US tour.
The band’s ‘No Filter’ tour began on September 26 in St. Louis, Missouri, which the band dedicated to their late drummer Charlie Watts, who died in August at the age of 80.
