ALICE COOPER Completes Work On 'Welcome 2 My Nightmare' - Feb. 20, 2011
Legendary rockers Alice Cooper has completed work on his new album, "Welcome 2 My Nightmare". Cooper made the revelation during his "Nights With Alice Cooper" syndicated radio show, saying that "'Welcome 2 My Nightmare' is done. It's just sitting there." Like the 1975 original "Welcome To My Nightmare" LP, was produced by Bob Ezrin, who also worked on the singer's "Billion Dollar Babies", "School's Out" and "Love It to Death" releases.

"We thought the story was good, but we started talking about 'Welcome To My Nightmare', which I think is our biggest triumph," Cooper told Billboard.com last October. "He mentioned, 'What if Alice had another nightmare?' And we wrote three songs right there. He got really involved in it. Bob is even darker than I am."

Cooper told Billboard.com that he and Ezrin were working on at least 13 songs, including the ballads "I Am Made of You" and "Something to Remember Me By". In addition, Cooper recorded three new songs with original bandmates Dennis Dunaway (bass), Neal Smith (drums) and Michael Bruce (guitar).

"When I listen to the first 'Nightmare', I've got all kinds of things going on," Cooper said. "There's a lot of hard rock on it, but it'll go way off in a weird direction in one song and then way off in other direction for another song. So where 'Welcome To My Nightmare' left off, this one starts right up. When it comes out it'll have an entire new production around it, probably as big as the original 'Nightmare' show. It'll be a big moment in my career."

"Welcome 2 My Nightmare" is scheduled for release later this year on Bigger Picture Records.

Spectacular! The first "...Nightmare" is my favorite album of Alice's and I've always loved the character of Steven so I'm quite jubilant and anxious over this news.
