According to BraveWords.com sources, ALICE COOPER will follow-up last year's Welcome 2 My Nightmare, with a brand new album of cover songs that will be supported by a fresh show for the fall. More information as it develops.
In other news, there may be gem from Cooper's past that may see the light of day. The Deadly Seven is a late 90's/early 2000's project and according to a BraveWords.com source, the "demos sound great. Very mid-70's Goes To Hell / Lace."
In a 2007 interview with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken by Bryan Reesman from AmericanWay, he filled in more blanks: "Alice Cooper and I started working years ago on a theatrical-concert idea that was the seven deadly sins according to Alice Cooper. It was called Alice’s Deadly Seven. It was a concept of Rob Roth, who directed the stage version of Beauty And The Beast and Aida. He and I have a Busby Berkeley project that has been pitched for years as a big Las Vegas–style production, and it may happen in the next couple of years. Rob brought Alice and me together. We got in a room and started working on this material. Alice wrote the lyrics, and I wrote the music. I did the demos, and we both sang parts of these. He would take my demos, and a couple of times, he came back with the demos he had done with members of Guns N’ Roses. It just never went any further. I think Alice is waiting until the record label he’s working with is ready to really do this right. This is one of those old-fashioned, big, fat concept albums. One of these days, if we stay healthy and live long enough, we’ll do it."
