In other Alice Cooper news, the artist released his The Breadcrumbs EP, a tribute to some of the garage rock heroes from his hometown Detroit, on September 13 via earMUSIC. Inspired by the city's punk scene in the late '60s and early '70s, the Detroit-born icon returned to his roots and the raw garage sound his fans love. The Bob Ezrin-produced EP consists of six brand new recordings, featuring legendary Detroit musicians, including Johnny "Bee" Badanjek from the Detroit Wheels, Grand Funk's Mark Farner, and MC5's Wayne Kramer. It was recorded at Rust Belt Studios in Detroit. The opener "Detroit City 2020" is an updated rewrite of "Detroit City" from 2003's The Eyes of Alice Cooper and it sets the tone for the EP. Along with Cooper's own take on Detroit rock classics such as Suzi Quatro's "Your Mama Won't Like Me," Bob Seger's "East Side Story," the MC5's "Sister Anne," and Shorty Long's "Devil With a Blue Dress On," as well as The Dirtbombs' "Chains of Love," the EP also features the brand-new Alice Cooper original "Go Man Go."
