Alice Cooper unveils cover art for upcoming album, "Paranormal"; releasing new single on Friday

earMUSICThe cover of Alice Cooper's forthcoming studio album, Paranormal, has been revealed at the shock rocker's official website and at the earMUSIC label's site. The album features a composite photo by Rob Fenn making it appear that Cooper has two heads.

Meanwhile, the record's lead single, a track called "Paranoic Personality," will arrive this Friday, June 9.

As previously reported, Paranormal is scheduled to be released on July 28, and was produced by Alice's longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin. The 12-track collection features guest appearances by U2 drummer Larry Mullen Jr., ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons and Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover, as well as by the three surviving members of the original Alice Cooper band -- bassist Dennis Dunaway, drummer Neal Smith and guitarist Michael Bruce.

Cooper collaborated on three new songs with Dunaway, Smith and Bruce, and those tracks will appear on a special bonus mini-album packaged with Paranormal that also will feature select live recordings. The album will be available as a two-CD digipack, two-LP collection, limited-edition box set and digital download.

Cooper currently is busy with a U.S. headlining tour that winds down on June 24 in El Paso, Texas. His next show takes place tonight, June 7, in Appleton, Wisconsin. After the current trek, Alice will mount a European summer tour leg running from early July to early August, after which he'll return to North America for his previously announced late-summer trek with Deep Purple and The Edgar Winter Band.
