Paranormal (Limited Double 180 Gram Gatefold Vinyl)
Released on July 28, 2017
180gm vinyl LP pressing housed in a gatefold sleeve. 2017 album from the veteran shock rocker. Paranormal is Alice Cooper's 20th studio album, his first album of original material in six years. It's a weird and wonderful collection of guitar-driven delights and produced by long-time collaborator Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Deep Purple), and featuring guests like ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons, U2 drummer Larry Mullen, Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover, as well as a highly anticipated mini-reunion of the original Alice Cooper band members. Paranormal is full of surprises and riveting turns. In keeping with his passion for the unexpected, the singer decided to steer clear of writing another concept album like 2011's Welcome 2 My Nightmare, and focused on creating an explosive collection of unforgettable standalone songs. On Paranormal, Alice Cooper and Bob Ezrin go back to their roots and create the raw garage sound that fans loved and still love. With the beloved sound of Coopers early days, fans will feel like they're taken back straight to the '70s. Perhaps the biggest surprise on Paranormal is the historic two-song mini-reunion with his former bandmates, guitarist Michael Bruce, bassist Dennis Dunaway and drummer Neal Smith. The two songs, Genuine American Girl and the Who-inspired You and All Your Friends stand out, as in their iconic sound being instantly recognizable. In addition to the 12 new tracks on Paranormal, the singer has included a bonus disc of his current band playing killer live versions of some of The Coop's greatest hits, such as No More Mr. Nice Guy, Billion Dollar Babies and School's Out.
