Legendary shock-rocker Alice Cooper reveals “Paranoiac Personality” today, the first single from his forthcoming album Paranormal. Produced by long-time collaborator Bob Ezrin, the song is an unforgettable slice of classic Alice Cooper and, in this editor’s humble opinion, the best song from him in a while. It really harks back a little to the old Constrictor era.
“Paranoiac Personality” is now available as digital download and stream. The digital single bundle includes a very special live version of “I’m Eighteen” – recorded live in Dallas 2015 and performed together with the Original Alice Cooper Band. This July also sees the release of a strictly limited 7” white vinyl collector’s single of “Paranoiac Personality”.
“Paranoiac Personality” is part of the new studio album Paranormal, Alice Cooper’s first in 6 years. The album, which is going to be released on July 28th, 2017 on earMUSIC worldwide, is available as digital preorder with immediate effect. You can grab it on [amazon text=Amazon right now&asin=B07215JZT4], or wait to pre-order the 2CD Digipak, 2LP+Bonus CD (live versions) or Limited Box Set (2CD Digipak+T-Shirt in size XL)!
The album features guests like ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons, U2 drummer Larry Mullen, Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover and also sees the highly anticipated mini-reunion of the original Alice Cooper band members on a very special bonus CD. Consisting of two brand new studio songs written and recorded together with Dennis Dunaway, Neal Smith and Michael Bruce, the bonus disc also includes 6 killer live versions of some of The Coop’s greatest hits, such as “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” “Billion Dollar Babies” and “School’s Out”, recorded in Columbus, Ohio in 2016 and performed together with Cooper’s current band.
Alice Cooper will be touring extensively this year in support of Paranormal, visiting cities in the USA, Europe, Australasia. His UK dates are his first headline tour in 5 years.
