Ace Frehley has announced that he’ll release a new studio album later this year.
It’s titled Spaceman and it’ll launch on October 19 via Entertainment One and features the track Bronx Boy which Ace revealed back in April this year (opens in new tab).
Frehley plays bass on all but two tracks on the record, with his former Kiss bandmate Gene Simmons taking the reigns on Your Wish Is My Command and Without You I’m Nothing, which was co-written by Simmons.
Speaking about hooking up with his old Kiss friend again, Frehley told Eddie Trunk: “I just shot him an email and said, ‘C’mon, let’s write some songs together for my new record.’
“Next thing you know, he’s down here and within three hours we had written two songs together, which was a record for me and him.”
He added: “We had a fantastic time. He came down. We ate in the backyard while I was watering my palm trees. He was going to my fiancée Rachel, ‘This is something new I’ve never seen before.’”
To mark the announcement, Frehley has shared a stream of his new single Rockin’ With The Boys, which documents life on the road and was penned by Ace while he was a member of Kiss back in the 70s.
Spaceman is the guitarist’s first album of all-new material since 2014’s Space Invader. Find a full list of Frehley’s upcoming live shows below.
