Alice Cooper is releasing a new six-track EP called 'Breadcrumbs' on Friday 13th September ahead of his 21st solo studio album in 2020.

‘Breadcrumbs’ is a tribute to the garage rock heroes from our Alice’s home city of Detroit, and features covers of MC5’s ‘Sister Anne’, Suzi Quatro’s ‘Your Mamma Won't Like Me’ and Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels’ ‘Devil With A Blue Dress’.

Alice’s band on the recordings are also Detroit natives including MC5's Wayne Kramer, jazz musician Paul Randolph, former Grand Funk Railroad singer Mark Farner, ex-Detroit Wheels drummer Johnny "Bee" Badanjek and Mick Collins.

Released via earMUSIC, ‘Breadcrumbs’ is available to buy digitally and on 10-inch vinyl that’s limited to just 20,000 copies worldwide.

No further details have been unveiled about Alice’s new album. earMUSIC simply wrote: “watch out for the new studio album in 2020.”

Alice’s last studio album, ‘Paranormal’, was released in July 2017 and featured bonus tracks performed by three members of the "classic" line-up of the Alice Cooper band - Neal Smith, Dennis Dunaway, and Michael Bruce.

It also boasted guest spots from Deep Purple's Roger Glover, U2's Larry Mullen Jr. and ZZ Top’s bearded maestro Billy Gibbons.

Alice’s Ol’ Black Eyes Is Back Tour hits the UK in October taking in shows in Manchester, Aberdeen, Leeds, Brighton, London, Birmingham and Cardiff.

Tickets to all dates are on sale from Planet Rock Tickets now.

1. Detroit City 2020
