Hitting iTunes TODAY is Alice Cooper's brand new single "Keepin' Halloween Alive."
That's right. For less than the cost of a cup of coffee you, too, can feed The Father of Shock Rock (or is he "The Grandfather of Shock Rock"...?).
This guy really knows how to nail it.
The release is right before the start of October.
Right after the beginning of Fall.
The ad (left) is made to look like a crappy Don Post or Collegeville boxed vinyl costume.
The thumbnail (below) for the single is orange and black and makes it look like an Alice Cooper jack o' lantern.
He released it on 9/29/9 which gives it a subliminal, upside-down 666. (Ok I might be reaching with that one...)
This guy knows how to give fans of Halloween exactly what they want and when they want it.
How's the music? The song is typical Cooper-fare so if you know and like his canon of work, you're going to like this too. Per the Press Release from AliceCooper.com:
"Alice delivers the song with the garage-punk snarl he is best known for, ensuring that it will soon be a Halloween classic. “At home my family all gathers around an old spooky tree decorated with skulls and bones in the living room, and we exchange gifts,” says Cooper. “It’s our holiday. We even all have matching black-and-orange Halloween sweaters! I wanted a theme song for people like me, and for us Halloween never ends. In the chorus I say, ‘I’m keepin’ Halloween alive, baby, 3–6–5’... and I mean it!”Do I really think his family gathers around the "old spooky tree" and "exchange gifts?"
But who cares, it's NEW HALLOWEEN MUSIC FROM ALICE FREAKIN' COOPER!
I've been off and on with Alice for a long time. I got on board back with "School's Out" but didn't buy my first Alice album until "Constrictor."
Because it tied into Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives and featured the song "He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)."
I love songs with parentheticals.
Just found THIS mock-PSA by the man himself, Mr. Alice Cooper.
Ahhhhh nothing like an amusing mix of self-referential parody, viral video and promotion.
Here's my question: Where the hell did that goat picture come from???
