Detailed Platinum Member Lesson

"After Midnight" is the fourth track from the 1970 album titled Eric Clapton. It was written by J. J. Cale and first released in 1966 but when Clapton's rendition became a success, it prompted Cale to re-record the song for Cale's 1972 album Naturally. In 1988, Clapton later re-recorded the song for a Michelob beer commercial and then released the re-recording as a single. "After Midnight" has been considered one of Clapton's signature songs throughout his career.
