I Want It Back

Album: Thank You Mr. Churchill (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from English musician Peter Frampton's 14th studio album, Thank You Mr. Churchill. Frampton explained to Gibson.com how he came up with this song: "I wrote that song during a break while on tour, year before last. I was trying to come up with something new to do as an encore, really. I wanted something that worked live, in a sort of Humble Pie-ish way. And that's what came out. I had the riff, which was sort of an ad-lib piece I was doing on-stage, just before we played 'While My guitar Gently Weeps.' When I got home, I started to see that riff as part of a much bigger piece."
