Ace Frehley Says His New Album Will Be Called “Spaceman”

Ace Frehley (ex-KISS) recently released a new song titled “Bronx Boy,” and now he has confirmed that his new album will be called “Spaceman.” He told the audience the following about that during the Indianapolis KISS Fan Expo over the weekend: “[The] new album should be out in a couple of months. It’s gonna be called ‘Spaceman’.” He also added that his former bandmate, Gene Simmons suggested the title at one of the “Vault Experience” events:

“I said to the audience, ‘What about calling my new album ‘Forty Years Later’, because it’s been forty years since my first solo record — 1978. And Gene goes, ‘No. You should call it ‘Spaceman’.’ So I figured I’d go with it. That’s a nice sound bite. Someone says, ‘How come it’s called ‘Spaceman’?’ I go, ‘Gene Simmons wanted me [to call it that].'”
