    ACE FREHLEY – New ORIGINS VOL.2 Covers Album Released 18th September via eOne Music/SPV

    Ace Frehley, KISS co-founder and 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, continues his reflections on a lifetime in music with the release of ‘Origins Vol. 2’, a thoughtful and exciting collection of new covers, on 18th September on Steamhammer / SPV as a DigiPak CD (plus bonus track), double gatefold 180 gram blue vinyl LP (with printed inner sleeves), download and stream.

     

    ‘Space Truckin’, the first single and video:

    No stranger to cover versions throughout his entire history – having recorded, re-branded and repossessed such notable nuggets as ‘New York Groove’, ‘Do Ya’, and ‘I Wanna Go Back’ over the course of his 8 studio albums – this new compendium contains songs that have all inspired and shaped the legendary guitarist’s life jukebox. Ace comments, “I just thought about the songs that I used to play in clubs when I was doing other people’s material. I went through my album collection and thought about the songs that influenced me the most. It’s a pretty well-rounded record and I think the fans will enjoy it.”

    ‘Origins Vol. 2’, featuring guest appearances by Robin Zander (Cheap Trick), John 5, Lita Ford and Bruce Kulick, is a well thought out, but not over-thought, album. For Ace, keeping things organic is an important part of crafting an album’s atmosphere: “I just let it happen. Things evolve when I start doing these records and I try not to plan too much ahead. I like spontaneity. It’s the same way I write guitar solos.”

    As the second volume focusing on his musical origins, Ace has grown since the release of  ‘Origins Vol.1’, which hit #23 on the Billboard Top 200 album charts in April 2016, becoming his 4th Top 40 and second highest charting solo album. Ace chuckles, “Since I had one covers album under my belt, the process of doing ‘Origins, Vol. 2’ was easier because I had put together a formula, picking guest stars and so-on.” The challenge for him was to put a suitable personal stamp on the material, and ‘Origins, Vol. 2’ is replete with special touches that both honour and embellish the songs.
