ACE FREHLEY To Release New Covers Album This Fall Via SPV/Steamhammer
June 4, 2015, 3 years ago
Original KISS guitarist, Ace Frehley, will issue his new album of covers later this year. SPV/Steamhammer has the release penciled in for an “Autumn 2015” release. Complete details are expected to be announced soon.
During an interview with 100% Rock Magazine back in December 2014, Frehley revealed that the upcoming album of cover songs will hold a special treat for his long-time fans — new takes on classic KISS songs:
Said Ace: "Yeah, absolutely, I’m re-recording some KISS tracks. I believe I’m going to be doing “Parasite”; I’m not sure which other ones, you know, and some covers that I’ve always wanted to do that I haven’t done. So, that’s going to be a fun record. I’m going to get a lot of different guest stars to play with me on these tracks. And it’s going to be a much easier record than this last one because I don’t have to write solos, and I don’t have to write lyrics because they’re already set. So, that’s going to be another fun record for me, and I’m looking forward to that, you know, start tracking it out in between tours and what-not."
