NITA STRAUSS Confirms She Will Play On ALICE COOPER’s New Album

nita-strauss-2022

Guitarist Nita Strauss has played with Alice Cooper’s live band since 2014 and will also be playing on the original shock rocker’s next album.

Strauss recently spoke with Meltdown and confirmed that she’s currently the only member of Cooper’s live band to have not played on a single record of his, and considers playing on the new one an incredible honor.

“I actually have a call with [Alice Cooper’s management] this weekend to discuss the progress of it. The last that I heard, we were in Nashville working on it. The band and I sat down and recorded quite a bit of music for this upcoming record. The band did also have a huge part in the writing this time, which is the first time that’s happened in the eight years that I’ve been in the band. So it was really, really fun — really exciting for us to get to work with a legend like Bob Ezrin. [It was] a huge, huge honor to be in the studio with him and Alice creating what we hope will be some more Alice Cooper music to just add to his legacy.”

“I’m on the live DVD. I’m on the live album releases, the live tracks that are bonus tracks and stuff, but [this is my] first studio album with Alice. I’m actually the only person in the band that hasn’t recorded anything with Alice before, so this is huge for me. [I’m] very, very honored.”

Nita says that she has no idea when the new album will arrive, but in the meantime she has been busy working on her new “half instrumental, half vocal” solo album.
