Alice Cooper is celebrating his 73rd birthday in style. Gifting himself and fans, he’s released ‘Social Debris’, a single taken from his forthcoming album Detroit Stories.
‘Social Debris’ has a huge 70s rock sound to it which isn’t so surprising, as it was recorded by the original Alice Cooper band.
The artist explains in a video posted to Facebook, “We always felt like we were social debris. We didn’t fit in. Nobody plays like the original band, they were more dangerous than any other band.”
“If you take this song and listen to Love It To Death and Killer, the song seems to go right back to that era,” he says. “We are social debris, and so are you.”

Alice Cooper has had a busy year or so. Last year, he announced he was releasing his very own choccy milk.
Then he joined the Wayne’s World cast for their reunion, Reunited Apart. He joined Brian May and Roger Taylor from Queen and Steven Tyler and Joe Perry from Aerosmith in the livestream.
And he partnered with Airbnb to deliver spooky stories to fans over Halloween.
Catch the music video for ‘Social Debris’ below. It’s taken from Detroit Stories, which is set for release Friday, 26th February.
