Nita Straussthe Los Angeles-based guitar shredder for the ALICE COOPER group, spoke to SiriusXMit is “Trunk Nation with Eddie Trunk” about his upcoming 2018 follow-up “Controlled Chaos” solo debut. She said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “It will be half and half – six tracks with singers and six instrumental tracks [music]. The next single after this one, I think, will be instrumental; we did it live on the solo tour and it got a really good response from our audience. So I think the next one will be instrumental – sort of a homecoming – and then another radio single after that.”
When asked if she could talk about some of the other guests who appear on her new solo album, Nita said, “Not at the moment. I will say we have a really, really cool mix of legacy people as well as new singers that I’m really excited about, and amazing male singers and amazing female singers as well.”
Early December, Nita Recount “The Mistress Carrie Podcast” about his decision to make the next half-vocal, half-instrumental LP: “I felt, and the label and everyone agreed, that it’s always important for me to keep my guitarist identity and not to branch out too much and go, “Okay, well, now they’re just guests.” Leave me a little bit more of what makes me myself, that is say the instrumental shred. And the instrumentals that I wrote on this record are, I think, better than anything I did on the first — definitely more… II don’t know if it could be more emotional , but they’re very emotional pieces of music and I think they’re crafted a little better this time around, so I think all the songs in general are more thought out, put together better this time around. have some of my absolute favorites [singers guesting on it]. I have three amazing female singers on this album so far. And there’s still a few things to figure out [to be determined]. And then we should be ready to go out next spring.”
