Alice Cooper will release a six-song EP, "Breadcrumbs", on September 13 via earMUSIC.
Described as a "tribute to the garage rock heroes from his hometown Detroit city," the EP boasts appearances by MC5's Wayne Kramer, jazz singer Paul Randolph, former GRAND FUNK RAILROAD member Mark Farner, ex-DETROIT WHEELS drummer Johnny "Bee" Badanjek and Mick Collins.
Cooper spoke about the release earlier in the year, telling The Oakland Press: "There's a certain Detroit sound we're looking for. It's indefinable. There's a certain amount of R&B in it. There's a certain amount of Motown in it. But then you add the guitars and you add the attitude and it turns into Detroit rock. I feel like if we mine around with all Detroit players, we're gonna find that sound."
"Breadcrumbs" will be made available digitally as well as on 20,000 numbered 10-inch vinyl copies.
Cooper's next full-length album is due in 2020.
