Alice Cooper - New Album Details

Welcome 2 My Nightmare, the highly anticipated new album of shock rock icon Alice Cooper will be released later this year through Universal Music Group.

Recorded with longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin - who produced the original multi-platinum Welcome To My Nightmare album in 1975 - the record picks up right where they left off, with Alice trapped in his own warped mind.

Explains Alice Cooper: "This is Alice's nightmare 35 years later. Bob and I created this character and we know how to write for him. I play the part but we're not writing for me, we're writing for Alice. We kept the first Nightmare album very personal to us, on this one we found more humor and we were more open. This was our world and we want to present it to the fans. The original album was my first solo album after all those huge hit records with the original band and now that nightmare is exposed, this one can be a little bit more open. The music crosses all sorts of boundaries; we went where the lyrics took us."

There is an array of collaborators on the new album, including original Alice Cooper members Denis Dunaway, Michael Bruce and Neal Smith reunited on three tracks; global pop superstar Ke$ha, who affectionately calls Alice "dad"; and legendary Alice and Lou Reed guitarist Steve Hunter, who is part of Alice's current touring band and featured prominently on the first Nightmare album.

Welcome 2 My Nightmare will be released first as a "fan pack" in conjunction with Future Publishing in September, with a conventional release following in October. The fan pack includes the album, a giant poster, a facepaint set, a metal badge, an Alice face mask and a 132-page magazine dedicated to all things Alice.
