Alice Cooper's cover version of of Bob Seger's 1966 single "East Side Story" can be streamed below. The track is taken from Alice's new six-song EP, "Breadcrumbs", which will be released on September 13 via earMUSIC.
Described as a "tribute to the garage rock heroes from his hometown Detroit city," the EP also includes covers of MC5's "Sister Anne", Suzi Quatro's "Your Mamma Won't Like Me" and MITCH RYDER AND THE DETROIT WHEELS' "Devil With A Blue Dress".
Joining Cooper on the recordings are MC5's Wayne Kramer, jazz singer Paul Randolph, former GRAND FUNK RAILROAD member Mark Farner, ex-DETROIT WHEELS drummer Johnny "Bee" Badanjek and Mick Collins.
"Breadcrumbs" will be made available digitally as well as on 20,000 numbered 10-inch vinyl copies.
Cooper spoke about the release earlier in the year, telling The Oakland Press: "There's a certain Detroit sound we're looking for. It's indefinable. There's a certain amount of R&B in it. There's a certain amount of Motown in it. But then you add the guitars and you add the attitude and it turns into Detroit rock. I feel like if we mine around with all Detroit players, we're gonna find that sound."
Cooper's next full-length album is due in 2020.
Alice recently completed a North American tour with HALESTORM.
