Alice Cooper On His Upcoming Album: “It Will Definitely Have A Lot Of Different Flavors In It That We Don’t Normally Go To”

During a recent interview with Kyle Meredith of Consequence Of Sound, Alice Cooper talked a bit about his upcoming album. According to him, the effort will contain “a lot of different flavors.”

Cooper said the following:

“We’ve done all the [musical] bed tracks already. The bed tracks are done. We did them all in Detroit, and now we’re going to be doing the vocals in Phoenix, just because I’m between tours at the time and I’ve got some days off in Phoenix. I said, ‘I really have to be home for a few days, so let’s do the vocals in Phoenix instead of going back to Detroit for the vocals.’ The essence of the songs are all done, ready to go.”

He also added the following when asked if the new material will be similar to his recent “Breadcrumbs” EP:

“That was the whole idea — ‘Breadcrumbs’ was sort of, like, leading you into the next album. It’s all original stuff. The new album is all original stuff. The original [ALICE COOPER] BAND is going to be playing on it — the O.G.’s, we call them. The original guys. There’s two or three songs that we wrote with the original guys, and they’re pure Detroit… We’re probably more Detroit than we are L.A. or Phoenix or anyplace else. We go to a lot of places that we wouldn’t normally go, because we’re working with writers that we normally don’t work with, and I kind of like that. I like breaking out of the mode where an ALICE COOPER album sounds like an ALICE COOPER album. This will sound like an ALICE COOPER album, but it will definitely have a lot of different flavors in it that we don’t normally go to.”
