ALICE COOPER guitarist Nita Strauss has released a new single, “Winner Takes All”, featuring a guest appearance by the legendary rocker himself
The track is taken from Nita’s upcoming sophomore solo album, tentatively due later this year via Sumerian Records.
“Winner Takes All” is the third song Nita has released featuring a star guest vocalist, the first being the enormously successful “Dead Inside” which featured guest vocals from DISTURBED‘s David Draiman and saw Nita become the first-ever solo female to have a No. 1 hit at Active Rock radio. She also returned to her instrumental roots last year with the release of single “Summer Storm“, a fast-paced, emotive shred-fest. In October 2022, Nita dropped “The Wolf You Feed“, an epic headbanger of a track featuring the insane vocal talent of Alissa White-Gluz of ARCH ENEMY.
Says Nita: “When we were working on the music for this album, there was no question that I wanted to create a song to collaborate with my longtime boss and friend, the legendary Alice Cooper. I think the track accomplishes what we set out to do — showcase Alice’s voice and signature style on the backdrop of a heavy, modern rock track. After many years of lending my style of playing to Alice’s music on stage, it was truly an honor to work together and hear his voice on one of my songs!”
Nita released 2018’s “Controlled Chaos” to mass acclaim from fans and media alike, with Metal Injection calling it “a great debut that — as its creator intended — leaves no doubt”, and Guitar World stating “‘Controlled Chaos’ is a panoramic view of Nita Strauss’s many strengths”.
Earlier this month, it was announced that Nita Strauss has returned to the Alice Cooper band for his 2023 tour.
The Alice Cooper North American tour, with an all-new show dubbed “Too Close For Comfort“, kicks off in late April in Michigan and continues through late September, including a handful of August stadium shows with DEF LEPPARD and MÖTLEY CRÜE, followed by a co-headlining late summer “Freaks On Parade” tour with Rob Zombie.
