Nita Strauss Says Her Second Solo Album “Is Very Much On The Way”

Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper, etc.) has offered a bit of an update on her second solo album. The guitarist is currently writing for the effort and it is expected to be released in late 2020.

Strauss said the following:

“Just a quick update for anyone asking about more clinics on the upcoming tour 🖤 I have made a conscious effort to back away from over scheduling myself this last month so I can focus my day off energy on something very important- WRITING!! Album 2 is very much on the way!!!! 😏🎉.

I’m not going to do a Kickstarter this time around but I have spent this break working on something for anyone who would like to be a part of it and get an inside look at the process, so stay tuned for that this week!

So crazy to think that the next leg of @alicecooper tour starts in 5 days!!! It seems like we just got home 🤯🤯 Can’t wait to see you all out on the road!

Nita Strauss Working On Second Solo Album

Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper, etc.) has revealed that she has started working on her second solo album. The guitarist told Heavy1 TV the following:

“I wrote the majority of ‘Controlled Chaos’ while I was on the previous Alice Cooper tour, so I’m falling right back into the pattern of writing my album on days off. I’ve got my Pro Tools rig out here, so I’m just writing and recording. And we’ll do some more clinics, do some more solo touring, do some more touring with Alice, and then I’m hopeful for a second album release in late 2020.”
