Ace Frehley Planning to Release Star-Studded Covers Album in 2015 as a Follow-Up to "Space Invader"

Image Courtesy of eOne MusicAce Frehley's latest solo album, Space Invader, won't be released until later this month, but the former KISS guitarist already is working on a follow-up.  The 63-year-old rocker reveals that the upcoming project will be a collection of cover tunes and remixes.

Frehley tells that the album will be released sometime next year, adding that he's planning to "get guest stars like Lita Ford, Mike McCready from Pearl Jam [and] Slash" to contribute to the record.  As for what covers tunes will appear on the album, he says, "I get suggestions, I come up with ideas, and I ask friends and associates about which songs to do."

As for why he expects to put out the new project so quickly after Space Invader, Ace points out, "The songs are already written, so it is faster and easier for me to make that record."

Frehley also says he's thinking about recording an updated version of his biggest solo hit, "New York Groove," for his next album.  The song, which was penned by ex-Argent singer Russ Ballard, reached #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1978.

As previously reported, Space Invader will be released on August 19.  Frehley will make an in-store appearance at the Best Buy in New York City's Union Square that night to celebrate the album's arrival.
