NITA STRAUSS Releases New Solo Single "Winner Takes All" Featuring ALICE COOPER

Fresh off the news that she would be returning to her role as guitarist with the legendary Alice Cooper, Los Angeles-born guitar hero and musical force of nature Nita Strauss has just announced her brand new single, "Winner Takes All" featuring none other than Cooper himself. 

Strauss comments: "When we were working on the music for this album, there was no question that I wanted to create a song to collaborate with my longtime boss and friend, the legendary Alice Cooper. I think the track accomplishes what we set out to do — showcase Alice's voice and signature style on the backdrop of a heavy, modern rock track. After many years of lending my style of playing to Alice's music on stage, it was truly an honor to work together and hear his voice on one of my songs!"

Alice Cooper is featured in a new interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, in which he talks about his new stage show, recording plans and the 50th anniversary of the chart-topping Billion Dollar Babies.

In the following excerpt, Alice talks about the return of guitarist Nita Strauss, who left the band to do a fall 2022 tour with Demi Lovato.

Asked who initiated the conversation for Nita to come back, Alice reveals, "It was the funniest thing because I always have had a revolving door in my band. If somebody has a thing where they say, "I want to go do this for six months," I go, "OK, go." Absolutely no problem. ... I understood what she was trying to do with Demi, and it worked. It was a good thing. And of course, getting Kane (Roberts) back in was a fan favorite. That was something that was really fun for us and them. And then at the end of it, I said, "You want to come back?" She goes, "Sure." And I went, "OK, great. It's gonna be a whole new show." I never, ever take a musician and put them in a position where they can't revolve out and then revolve back in."
