Alice Cooper’s last album, Welcome 2 My Nightmare was his most successful since 1989’s Trash – but despite this late-career success, we’ve still had to wait six long years for news of a follow up.

Now we are happy to report that Cooper will release Paranormal, his 27th studio album, on July 28.

The album was recorded in Nashville, and will feature guest appearances from heavy-hitters U2’s Larry Mullen Jr., ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Deep Purple’s Roger Glover.
