Press release:

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.

Premiered on BBC Radio 2’s Chris Evans Breakfast Show on Thursday morning, June 8th, as well as on Alice Cooper’s own radio show “Nights With Alice Cooper”, “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. Physically, it will be released as 2CD Digipak, 2LP+Bonus CD (live versions) and Limited Box Set (2CD Digipak+T-Shirt in size XL).

The album is featuring 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.

Sounds ok, I like Alice Cooper, but I haven't been able to get into too many of the releases since The Last Temptation. Maybe some of the other tracks off this new one will grab my attention though

I think I'll take his two sell-out albums and leave the rest for you guys. Just not a fan at all. ;)

Agree. But I am a greatest hits fan and don't mind this new song.

I would like to punch the guy who started this trend with lyric videos.

All the advancement in technology and what do we get, words on the screen instead of some live show.

Besides that the song sounds good and will be getting this one soon, I think it comes out in a week or two.

Probably will pass on the bonus material since I'm not a fan of these cardboard cd cases.

Get used to 'em. Lyric videos are cheaper than shooting an actual music video - which, since MTV no longer plays videos, are less and less relevant nowadays.

 

You don't need actors, makeup people, a camera crew, or a zillion dollar production budget -- just a bunch of still photos and software to put the lyrics over top of 'em in a fancy font. Boom! Done.

Besides, most music videos are awkward as hell anyway.

Wait till all the shows are just holograms because it's cheaper. Maybe then you will complain. You keep letting these guys off the hook and they will take all they can get.

Two completely different things.

Ummm...yeah, I'm with Karpet, I don't see a connection between hologram tours and lyric videos. Apples and oranges.

 

...if people are seriously dumb enough to pay to watch a hologram, that's their biz. A fool and his $$ are soon parted, 'n' all that.

I absolutely loved Welcome 2 my nightmare as it was my album of the year when it came out (which I was not expecting as I would never say Alice is one of my top artists), and it amazed me when I realised that Alice has not actually released a studio album since then (if you exclude Hollywood Vampires).

Got the new one this morning (came with a t-shirt which was not even listed when I originally preordered with Amazon UK, so was a nice surprise, especially as it is in my size).

Have to say I could have done without the live tracks as there are enough Alice live albums released in the last few years, and as I own none of them you can see my interest in live tracks.

As for the studio songs, they are great. Not gonna be my album of the year this time, but some of the songs on this like Rats, Dead, Flies, Paranormal, Holy water and Dynamite Road all hooked themselves into my brain straight away.

After a few years of good but not great albums after Brutal planet, its awesome that the last two have both been fantastic.

 

Welcome was a throw back to the more classic Alice sound, with a few modern and newer touches, and I was kinda expecting more of the same on this considering the input of the other members of the original band, but it isnt. Its hard to put my finger on it. It is classic rock, but its not 70s Alice. Not 80s or 90s Alice either. I dont think there is anything really modern on it either. I suppose its a bit 80s, a bit old school rock n roll with maybe a smidge of 70s.
