On September 3rd, Australian guitar sensation ORIANTHI (ALICE COOPER, MICHAEL JACKSON) is releasing the Deluxe Edition of her latest album, Heaven In This Hell, which features three exclusive bonus tracks including a duet with AEROSMITH singer Steven Tyler on the track 'Sex E Bizarre'. The song - written by Orianthi, Tyler and Marti Frederiksen - is streaming online at HitFix
In late 2011, between legs of Alice Cooper's world tour (where she played lead guitar), she began work on Heaven In This Hell.
“I am so proud of this album because it really showcases my style of riff heavy rock and energetic blues,” Orianthi remarks. “The success of Believe (her previous CD) helped give me credibility and afforded me the freedom to create the kind of album I have been wanting to make, with musicians I respect, playing together live in a studio, creatively exchanging ideas... the way I want all my records to be made. My friend, collaborator and producer, Dave Stewart (EURYTHMICS) and I just jammed and hashed out a variety of songs and sounds until we found the grooves that inspired us”, she continued.
While Orianthi recorded a majority of Heaven In This Hell at Blackbird Studio in Nashville, she also recorded several songs and overdubs at Dave Stewart's Hollywood Studio.
