LITA FORD is set to release her latest album Time Capsule on SPV/Steamhammer on April 15, 2016. Thevery special and unusual recording turns back the clock to a time when honest, down-to-earth rock music was still handmade and recorded without digital tricks and contraptions. Time Capsule is a “throwback” record that boasts identifiable voices and brilliant players jamming without any planning or pressure. Some of the album`s highlights: Billy Sheehan (bass), Rodger Carter (drums), Dave Navarro (mandolin), Jeff Scott Soto (vocals), Rick Nielsen and Robin Zander (backing vocals) and Gene Simmons (bass).
Today LITA debuts the first single from Time Capsule entitled “Rotten to the Core”. Check out an exclusive interview with LITA and stream the song courtesy of Noisey HERE. The song features Gene Simmons on Bass, Rodger Carter on Drums and additional guitars are supplied by Bruce Kulick.
Time Capsule contains ten songs plus an intro and will be available as a digipak as well as an LP version and download. It`s Ford`s gift to fans who love the ´80s, when thrilling vocal performances, raunchy riffs, and loud, growling guitars were as essential as oxygen. Time Capsule is available for pre-order HERE.
