ACE FREHLEY RELEASES NEW ALBUM ORIGINS VOL. 2 VIA ENTERTAINMENT ONE
FEATURING JOHN 5, LITA FORD, BRUCE KULICK,
ROBIN ZANDER AND MORE
Toronto, ON – September 18, 2020 – Founding KISS guitarist and Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame member, Ace Frehley, has released his highly-anticipated second collection of eleven rock 'n' roll covers titled Origins Vol. 2, today via Entertainment One (eOne).
The record acts as the sequel to Frehley’s 2016 album, Origins Vol. 1, and continues his reflections on a lifetime in music and inspiration. Frehley is joined by friends on guest appearances, such as Robin Zander of Cheap Trick, former KISS comrade Bruce Kulick, John 5, and Lita Ford. Frehley and company tackle high energy versions of deep cuts and classics by Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, and other musical touchstones of rock. No stranger to cover versions throughout his musical history — having recorded, rebranded, and repossessed such notable nuggets as "New York Groove," "Do Ya" and "I Wanna Go Back" throughout his eight previous studio efforts — this new collection presents a thoughtful and exciting selection of songs that inspired and helped shape the legendary guitarist.
Describing the process in selecting the songs on this album, Ace comments, "I just thought about the songs that I used to play in clubs when I was doing other people's material. I went through my album collection and thought about the songs that influenced me the most. It was fun picking out the songs. It's a pretty well-rounded record and I think the fans will enjoy it.” That spirit of fun is carried through with exquisite execution and guitar aficionados are going to enjoy Frehley's fresh interpretations of these classic songs.
