Nita Strauss Says Alice Cooper’s Band Had “A Huge Part” In Writing Music For His Next Album

During a recent interview with Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF, Alice Cooper’s guitarist, Nita Strauss offered an update on the frontman’s new album. According to her, the band had “a huge part” in writing music for the effort.

Strauss said the following:

“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 [produer] 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 [Alice Cooper] 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 [current lineup of Alice’s] band that hasn’t recorded anything with Alice before, so this is huge for me. [I’m] very, very honored.”

She continued when asked about release plans:

“I don’t have that information. I can tell you a lot about my [upcoming solo] record, but when it comes to Alice, I’m a hired musician, just like the rest of ’em. Right now we are still touring on ‘Detroit Stories’, which just came out last year. So I don’t know that it’ll necessarily be immediately that we’ll see the next one. But please don’t take my word for it. It’s not my band. I don’t wanna speak out of turn. But I know we are gonna be touring on ‘Detroit Stories’ a lot this year.”
