Legendary singer Alice Cooper has revealed some details about his upcoming new studio album
Alice Cooper touched on the sound of his upcoming follow-up to 2021’s “Detroit Stories” LP on this past Wednesday’s (March 1) episode of his “Nights With Alice Cooper“ radio show.
Alice said: “There’s another album coming out that’s really gonna knock you out. Everybody really likes it, the people that have heard it so far. It’s just a rocking rock and roll album.”
Cooper also mentioned his brand-new live show, saying he was “getting ready for another year of traveling around the world to play for my adoring fans.” He added: “I think that it’s fair to say that it’s going to be another amazing year because it’s a brand-new show. We’re bringing an entirely new show. The castle has gone. [I] can’t tell you what it’s going to be right now, but I can tell you there’s that.”
Just last year, Alice relayed to Germany’s Rolling Stone that he was working on two new albums with legendary producer Bob Ezrin. “A lot of those were born during the plague,” he said. “We couldn’t go touring for 18 months, so what’s a musician gonna do? Well, they’re going to write songs. Everybody has a studio in their house. So we were writing songs and doing demos. And at the end of this whole thing, I got in touch with Bob and said, ‘Here’s 30 songs.’ And we decided, ‘Okay, let’s do two albums.’ But the two albums are definitely two different angles of coming in to Alice Cooper. One is very hard rock; the other one is hard rock but it’s twisted. And that’s all I can say about it right now, because there’s a couple of really important things about both albums.”
Alice Cooper‘s latest album, “Detroit Stories“, was recorded with producer Bob Ezrin, for the most part in Royal Oak with Detroit musicians and featured a mix of original tracks as well as covers of songs by Bob Seger, the MC5, Mitch Ryder’s DETROIT WHEELS and OUTRAGEOUS CHERRY. That record dropped in February of 2021.
In 2018, Alice Cooper released “A Paranormal Evening At The Olympia Paris“, a recording of his December 7, 2017 concert at the world-renowned Olympia venue in France.
Alice Cooper also recently released two albums with HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES, (the project he is involved in with actor Johnny Depp and AEROSMITH guitarist Joe Perry) being 2015’s “Hollywood Vampires” and 2019’s “Rise“.
In other Alice Cooper news, the iconic singer is also set to hit the road with Rob Zombie for the “Freaks On Parade” North American trek.
Following a very successful run last summer, Zombie is at it again. This year he joins forces with the “godfather of Shock Rock” Cooper who promises to bring his signature style of macabre rock on tour. Rounding out the lineup are industrial pioneers MINISTRY and eclectic alternative rock act FILTER.
