Last month, Cooper released the “Breadcrumbs” EP via earMUSIC. The effort is Alice Cooper‘s tribute to the garage rock heroes from his former hometown, Detroit. The EP features six brand new recordings and is available on digital and as limited and numbered 10-inch vinyl — with only 20,000 copies worldwide — sold at very special price.
Joining Cooper on the recordings are MC5‘s Wayne Kramer, jazz singer Paul Randolph, former Grand Funk Railroad member Mark Farner, ex-Detroit Wheels drummer Johnny “Bee” Badanjek and Mick Collins.
The EP includes covers of Bob Seger‘s 1966 single ‘East Side Story‘, MC5‘s ‘Sister Anne‘, Suzi Quatro‘s ‘Your Mamma Won’t Like Me‘ and Mitch Ryder and The Detroit Wheels‘ ‘Devil With A Blue Dress‘.
Cooper‘s next full-length album is due in 2020.
