As we are in the Covid19 pandemic and the touring industry has shutdown worldwide, it’s giving artists more time to head to the studio. Alice Cooper is seldom off the road and has now confirmed he’s “nearly done” with his latest album.
Alice Cooper told Rolling Stone about recording the album and his schedule
“While our management is working to reschedule the postponed shows, I’m going to finish work on my next album, which is nearly done,” Cooper confirmed. Finding a silver lining, the singer added, “At least now I won’t be squeezing in vocal recording sessions on days off, between shows. I don’t like a lot of time off, as anyone who sees my schedule already knows, but a little extra time at home can be re-energizing.”
For over 50 years Alice Cooper has been recording albums and this one will be his 27th album. His latest album released in 2017 ‘Paranormal’ featured appearances from the original members of the Alice Cooper band as well as U2, Deep Purple and ZZ Top.
Regarding the COVID19 pandemic, Cooper sent a message of compassion to the world “We’re all in this together, whether you’re entertainer or fan, rich or poor, male or female, old or young,” he said, “And we’ll get through this together. And when we do, we’ll be back on the road, doing what we love to do.”
With lots of artists and workers in the entertainment field around the world losing their income and probably jobs, There’s been a call for fans to support artists by buying merchandise. Cooper said “My band has been around a long time and are lucky enough to have the resources to survive through this, but maybe fans should buy some merch or music from younger newer bands that can’t tour right now and don’t have the reserves that we have.”
