Following last year's Breadcrumbs EP, Alice Cooper has detailed a new studio album. The rock vet will tell Detroit Stories on his 21st solo LP, out February 6 through earMUSIC.

The 15-track Detroit Stories follows Cooper's 2017 album Paranormal, and celebrates the spirit of Detroit rock music in a new era.

Recorded with producer Bob Ezrin, the album finds Cooper alongside Detroit players including MC5's Wayne Kramer, drummer Johnny "Bee" Badanjek of the Detroit Wheels, bassist Paul Randolph, the Motor City Horns and more.

"We had musical ideas and encouragement from John Varvatos, the support of the folks at Shinola, and we recorded at Rustbelt Studios in Royal Oak," Ezrin shared in a statement, adding, "This was made in Detroit, for Detroit, by Detroit denizens!"

First single and album opener "Rock 'N' Roll" arrives Friday (November 13), while the previously shared "Hanging on by a Thread (Don't Give Up)" also appears in the tracklist. Earlier this year, Cooper had Canadian tour dates derailed by COVID-19.
