Alice Cooper updates new album status

Alice Cooper is sharing an update on the status of his new album after having his world tour shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The rocker – who recently postponed a spring series of North American dates – tells Rolling Stone that he has no plans to be idle during some forced, but rare, downtime in his schedule.

“While our management is working to reschedule the postponed shows, I’m going to finish work on my next album, which is nearly done,” Cooper tells the music outlet via email. “At least now I won’t be squeezing in vocal recording sessions on days off, between shows. I don’t like a lot of time off, as anyone who sees my schedule already knows, but a little extra time at home can be re-energizing.”

The singer is maintaining a positive outlook during the global health crisis.

“We’re all in this together,” he says. “Whether you’re entertainer or fan, rich or poor, male or female, old or young. And we’ll get through this together. And when we do, we’ll be back on the road, doing what we love to do.

“My band has been around a long time and are lucky enough to have the resources to survive through this,”
he adds, “but maybe fans should buy some merch or music from younger newer bands that can’t tour right now and don’t have the reserves that we have.”

Cooper’s most recent studio album is 2017’s “Paranormal”, which reached No. 32 on the US Billboard 200; last fall, he paid tribute to rockers from his Detroit hometown with an EP entitled “Breadcrumbs.”
