    Eric Clapton released a new single today entitled “Pompous Fool” from Bushbranch/Surfdog Records. The song was written by Clapton and Robin Monotti, produced by Clapton and his longtime producing partner Simon Climie, and is performed by Clapton on lead vocals and guitar, Sonny Emory on drums, Nathan East on bass, Paul Carrack on hammond organ, Walt Richmond on piano and keyboards, and Sharon White on background vocals. You can listen to the single and watch the video HERE! The album artwork comes from a set of Tarot cards made by Martin Sharp in 1967, altered to create the cover art. Sharp was a roommate of Clapton’s and created the cover art for Cream’s “Disraeli Gears” and co-wrote “Tale of Brave Ulysses.” "POMPOUS FOOL" LYRICS Don’t you worryDon’t be blueLet your womanTake care of you Live your lifeBy the golden rulePay no mindTo the pompous fool Do you wanna danceDo you wanna singDo you still believeThat Jerry Lee was king? Is it your opinionThat Charlie Wilson’s coolPay no mindTo the pompous fool In life you knowMay I say to youBe careful who you followThere may be no more tomorrowIf you follow the pompous fool So don’t you worryDon’t be blueLet your womanTake care of you Do your thingBy the golden rulePay no mindTo the pompous fool In life you knowMay I say to youBe careful who you followThere ain't nobody homeFear knocking on the doorIn the mind of the pompous fool Do you wanna laughDo you wanna cryDo you still believeIn you and I Is it your opinionThat we should start againAnd turn the volumeDown from number 10 Don’t you worryDon’t be blueLet your womanTake care of you Live your lifeBy the golden rulePay no mindTo the pompous fool
