Alice Cooper is marking his 73rd birthday today (Thursday) with the release of “Social Debris,” another song off his forthcoming album, Detroit Stories.
It's available as a free download for 24 hours on his website AliceCooper-DetroitStories.com.
Written with the original Alice Cooper band, Alice says "Social Debris” is "a gift to Detroit, to my fans and to myself. We never thought that we would ever fit in; the Alice Cooper band didn’t fit in with anybody, because we were doing things that no other band did.
"We didn’t fit in with the folk scene, we didn’t fit in with the metal scene, we really didn’t fit in with anything that was going on at that time. We just always felt like we were outsiders. We felt like we were social debris, we were in our own little world. So 'Social Debris' was just the original band writing a song about us, essentially. And it came out sounding like it belonged in 1971. That’s just the original band – you can’t change that, it’s great.”
Detroit Stories will be released on February 26th.
