Rock icon, Alice Cooper, dropped his first single “Paranoiac Personality” from his upcoming record Paranormal. Fueled by guitar strikes and slithering chords, the single envelopes you with an edgy aura where Alice’s raspy vocals swoops you to the verge of anxiety. “I’m smelling a conspiracy / Telling lies about me constantly” chants Alice. For all those times you felt that everyone was plotting against you, here’s the play button:

Paranormal is like 12 great episodes of The Twilight Zone, each song tells its own twisted little tale” shared Alice. “My definition of paranormal is something that is ‘other than normal’ or ‘alongside of normal.’ You could say my whole career has been that. I would look at what was normal and step left of it. that’s what gets people’s attention. They’d listen to our music and see our show and say, ‘That’s so strange…oh yea, that’s so Alice.”

Set to release on July 28th, the new record is Alice’s first record of original music in six years. His long-time collaborator, Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Deep Purple), produced it and features other musicians including U2 drummer Larry Mullen Jr., ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons, and Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover.
