Alice Cooper: “I’m Working On Two Albums Right Now”

During a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk,” Alice Cooper revealed that he is working on two new albums. According to him, the records “will really be hard rock albums.”

Cooper said the following:

“I’m working on two albums right now, actually — two studio albums. And all I can say is that one is written — totally written — and we’ll be doing bed tracks for that one pretty soon. And then the other one is just a touch in the future, but that’s being written right now too. They’re two entirely different kinds of albums, but they’re Alice Cooper pure rock and roll albums. The two albums will really be hard rock albums.”

He also added:

“It’s kind of like the old days when you’re touring and putting out records at the same time. It kind of takes me back to when you’re doing ‘Love It To Death’ and then you tour for ‘Love It To Death’. While you’re doing ‘Love It To Death’, you’re writing ‘Killer’. When ‘Love It To Death’ is over, ‘Killer’ comes out and then you go support that. And while you’re doing ‘Killer’, you’re writing ‘School’s Out’. So we’re kind of piggybacking everything. And I kind of like that. It keeps everything moving. I don’t like those big chunks of time when there’s nothing going on.”

Metal Department Release “Alice Cooper And The Tome Of Madness” Spoken-Word Record

Metal Department have released a new Alice Cooper spoken-word record titled “Alice Cooper And The Tome Of Madness.” Fans can purchase the effort on black and yellow vinyl at metaldepartment.com.

Here’s a description of the record:

“The ‘Alice Cooper And The Tome Of Madness’ 12″ record is the perfect companion piece to the official Alice Cooper slot game that was released in 2021.

The back story of the game is Alice Cooper writing his memoirs in a strange journal (tome), which conjures up stories of other Alice Coopers in different dimensions – and now he must keep writing to simply stay alive!

On this +18 minute long spoken-word record you can hear Alice himself narrate a horror story of The Tome Of Madness.

The 12″ record comes packed in a deluxe gatefold-sleeve with artwork taken from the game.”

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.”
