ACE FREHLEY DEBUTS “GIMME A FEELIN'” VIA ROLLING STONE ALL NEW LP “SPACE INVADER” OUT THIS SUMMER!
Founding KISS guitarist and 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Ace Frehley has debuted an all new single titled Gimme a Feelin’ exclusively through
Rolling Stone today (May 29th). The new effort serves as the first single from his all new LP Space Invader slated for a summer release via eOne Music.
Gimme a Feelin’ is available for purchase on iTunes and Space Invader is available for pre-order via Amazon.
Widely known as the original “Space Ace” and founding guitarist for 16 cumulative years (over 2 tenures) of the multi platinum selling rock band KISS, Frehley is demonstrably the most popular original member. In addition to having the best selling solo album career (vintage or current) among the original foursome, Frehley’s self titled Ace Frehley, released in 1978, went on to sell over one million copies, producing the only Top 40 single, New York Groove, from any of the legendary KISS solo albums; (peaking at #13). The massive hit was most recently featured in an episode of cult show Entourage and was also KISS’ second best selling download in 2012, besting such KISS Army anthems as I Was Made For Lovin’ You, Beth and Calling Dr. Love even after 36 years.
Since departing from KISS, Frehley went on to release four more solo albums and one live EP including his most recent effort, Anomaly in 2009, which debuted at #27 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and received a welcoming response among critics.
You can catch Ace Frehley accepting his award at the 29th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction Ceremony on May 31st at 8pm on HBO.
From a marketing perspective (yes, despite the portrayal of Ace as an artist and rock & roller, first, by most of the commenters here, business and marketing concerns aren’t exclusive to Paul and Gene), Ace should’ve released his cover of Steve Miller’s “The Joker” as the first single. It probably would’ve gotten more buzz and airplay on rock radio than this song…
Maybe he wanted to exactly avoid the impression that he can only be successful using somebody elee’s song, like NY groove written by the great Russ Ballard and rather have a typical Ace tune instead?
Straight up old school rock n roll, some of you on here have fun arguing.
I loved this new song by Ace! Classic sounding Ace. I agree with Eddie, it reminds me of his 78 album. Great hooks.
Its by Ace and sounds like Ace so what the arguing for?
