Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy working on new solo album

Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy is sharing an update on his plans for a new solo album.

The rocker is working on the follow-up to 2018's "Year Of The Tiger" with producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette, engineer Jef Moll, bassist Tim Tournier and drummer Zia Uddin.

“The time you and your buddies drove nearly 2900 miles in 3 days to make your 2nd solo record,” posted Kennedy on August 11 before spending some time rehearsing in the studio: “Making some noise during prepro this week,” he added on August 14. “Tomorrow tracking begins with the mighty @zznuddin.”

The sessions got off to a quick start, according to the singer: “Drums and percussion done!,” he posted on August 22. “A musical bond that started over 34 years ago continues today. Grateful for the incredible work ethic and talent my brother @zznuddin brought to this record. In my opinion he is one of the best out there. More important....he’s a great human.”

The second half of the rhythm section is moving the project forward this week: “Watching Tim Tournier lay it down on first day of recording bass,” wrote Kennedy on August 24.

"Year Of The Tiger" reached No. 63 on the US Billboard and top 10 spots in Scotland, New Zealand and Austria.
