“The Sound of A” is going to be released on February 23, 2018, only a few days after Alice Cooper’s birthday. In addition to the title track, the single —available as limited edition CD single, 10″ white vinyl—includes four previously unreleased live songs recorded in Columbus, Ohio, on May 6.
Earlier this December, Alice was awarded with the Best International Artist prize at the 19th Annual SSE Scottish Music Awards. The event is held in Glasgow every year and raises funds for the Nordoff Robbins Scotland music charity — only this year, over £148,000 were collected for the music therapy activities.
In July 2017,Cooper released Paranormal, his first studio album in six years. Produced by Bob Ezrin, it was immediately saluted as a classic album, thanks to collaborations with iconic guests such as ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, U2’s Larry Mullen, Jr., and Deep Purple’s Roger Glover.
The album charted at #4 in the German and Australian official album charts, #6 in the UK and in Sweden and overall, it reached the highest chart positions for Cooper in several decades.
Cooper just finished a hugely successful world-wide tour, with over 100 shows played in all five continents. Alice even found the pleasure to reunite with the original Alice Cooper band: Dennis Dunaway, Neal Smith, and Michael Bruce during various shows in USA and UK. The Alice Cooper band split in 1974, after releasing some of the most iconic rock albums of all time. After the band’s split, Alice went on to continued success as a solo artist.
