Alice Cooper Announces New Album ‘Detroit Stories’

Rock N Roll icon Alice Cooper has announced his new album, Detroit Stories, out February 26th via earMUSIC.

The album, named after the city that launched the original Alice Cooper band, is a modern-day homage to one of rock’s toughest scenes. Produced by longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, the album features Detroit legends like MC5’s Wayne Kramer, Johnny “Bee: Badanjek of The Detroit Wheels, Paul Rudolph, and other local musicians.

Fans will get a preview of the new album this Friday, November 13th with the release of Cooper’s cover of The Velvet Underground’s “Rock ‘N’ Roll.”

“Los Angeles had its sound with The Doors, Love and Buffalo Springfield,” Cooper said in a statement, “San Francisco had the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. New York had The Rascals and The Velvet Underground.

“But Detroit was the birthplace of angry hard rock. After not fitting in anywhere in the U.S.– musically or image-wise – Detroit was the only place that recognized the Alice Cooper guitar driven, hard rock sound and our crazy stage show. Detroit was a haven for the outcasts. And when they found out I was born in East Detroit… we were home.”

Detroit Stories will be available on CD, CD+DVD Digipak featuring the live performance live performance “A Paranormal Evening At The Olympia Paris” for the first time on video, CD box set that comes with a shirt, face mask, torch light, and stickers, and 2LP gatefold vinyl.
