Lita Ford recently relayed some information about her forthcoming new studio album
In the latest episode of “The Kenny Aronoff Sessions,” the podcast hosted by the highly accomplished drummer Kenny Aronoff, the spotlight was on Lita Ford. A renowned figure in the history of rock and roll, Kenny Aronoff delved into a conversation with Lita Ford, which you can now catch in the video below.
When asked if there is anything left that she would like to accomplish, Lita said: “I did write a new record and I wanna get it out for the fans. I’m having a little bit of an ordeal with record labels because here we are, 2023, going on ’24, and it’s not the same. And they’re not the same, and everything else is just… I don’t wanna hope and pray that it gets treated the way it should, because it’s not a cash grab.
“This record is a real record and I want the fans to have it, hear it and see it because it’s very visual as well as riffy and stuff. It’s just a killer record. So I would like to get that record out and for the fans. That’s on my bucket list.”
Speaking more about this record, Lita said: “There was a lot of things that happened during the process of this record. My manager died, my songwriting partner died. There was drug rehab, drug withdrawals — just all kinds of stuff that happened. And this record is real. It’s almost like I had to live it before I could write it. And it took a long time.
“It wasn’t something that was written in a weekend. And so the songs are coming from a really hardcore place, because they’re just real. And I think a lot people will be able to them in their own way. Plus it’s rocking. It’s a killer record.”
Lita Ford‘s upcoming album, a follow-up to her 2012 release “Living Like A Runaway,” has once again been guided by the skilled guitarist and producer Gary Hoey. The album features Gary Hoey‘s guitar prowess along with contributions from the other members of Lita’s long-standing backing band: Patrick Kennison on guitar, Bobby Rock on drums, and Marty O’Brien on bass.
Before this upcoming release, Lita Ford‘s last musical endeavor was the 2016 album “Time Capsule.” This collection consisted of songs that Lita had recorded in the past but had never been made available until then.
Seven years ago, Lita Ford shared her life’s story through her autobiography titled “Living Like A Runaway: A Memoir.” Published by Dey Street Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers (formerly It Books), the autobiography provided insights into Lita Ford‘s journey.
