ACE FREHLEY TO RELEASE “SPACE TRUCKIN'” PICTURE DISC EP FOR “RECORD STORE DAY” ON NOVEMBER 27TH
Founding KISS guitarist and Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Ace Frehley has announced the Space Truckin’ picture disc EP, a title exclusive to Record Store Day on November 27th, in the form of a 12-inch vinyl picture disc for his single, a cover of the Deep Purple classic. The limited-edition vinyl release also features additional bonus tracks such as Mission To Mars and The Return Of Space Bear. To celebrate the announcement, Ace has shared an extended double music video for Mission On Mars and Space Truckin’, watch it here.
“Space Truckin‘ was recorded years ago, and then I just re-recorded some parts and changed it a little,” Frehley said in a statement. “We never ended up putting it on a record, so it was just sitting around. It turned out very well. Rob Sabino is a very accomplished studio musician, and we actually grew up in the Bronx together, so we go way back.”
Space Truckin’ picture disc EP track listing:
1. Space Truckin’
2. Space Invader (Radio Edit)
3. Mission To Mars
4. Space Truckin’ (Radio Edit)
5. The Return Of Space Bear
Space Truckin’ is taken from Frehley’s newest album, Origins Vol. 2, out now via Entertainment One (eOne), which continues Ace’s reflections on a lifetime in music and inspiration. No stranger to cover versions throughout his musical history — having recorded, rebranded and repossessed such notable nuggets as New York Groove, Do Ya and I Wanna Go Back throughout his eight previous studio efforts — this new collection presents a thoughtful and exciting selection of songs that inspired and helped shape the legendary guitarist. That spirit of fun is carried through with exquisite execution, and guitar aficionados will enjoy Frehley’s fresh interpretations of these classic songs.
