earMUSIC is proud to announce the worldwide signing of legendary shock-rocker Alice Cooper.
The 69-year-old Alice Cooper will be presenting a brand new album titled “Paranormal” on the 28th of July, his 27th studio album and his first since 2011’s Welcome 2 My Nightmare. It’s been six years since we’ve got a new one from Cooper, so we will be impatiently waiting to see what he has in store for us. The album will be released on earMUSIC as 2CD Digipak, 2LP, Limited Box Set and Digital.
The 12-track album has been recorded in Nashville with longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin and features a very special bonus CD — a mini-album consisting of three brand new songs written and recorded together with the original ALICE COOPER band members Dennis Dunaway, drummer Neal Smith and guitarist Michael Bruce, alongside carefully selected live recordings.
“Paranormal” also features special guest appearances by U2’s Larry Mullen Jr., ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Deep Purple’s Roger Glover.
With regards to the “Paranormal” album title, Cooper said: “I love that title, ‘Paranormal’, but it’s not really a scary record. There’s a couple of scary songs on it, but it is ‘paranormal,’ meaning ‘other than normal.’ This is not a normal Alice record. Bob and I decided, ‘No theme this time. We’re gonna make a record of things that just get us off, songs that we like. And it might go in a lot of different directions, but these are just songs that get us off.”
Alice Cooper will be touring extensively this year in support of “Paranormal”, visiting cities in the USA, Europe, Australasia.
