News: Alice Cooper Drops New Single ‘Social Debris’ From New LP ‘Detroit Stories’

It appears that Alice Cooper is in a celebratory mood today. Not only is it his birthday, but his new record, Detroit Stories, is being released February 26.

To mark the occasion, he’s offering a free download of his new single, “Social Debris.”

On the track’s release, Cooper states:

“The single “Social Debris” is a gift to Detroit, to my fans, and to myself. The track was written by the original Alice Cooper band. We never thought that we would ever fit in; the Alice Cooper band didn’t fit in with anybody because we were doing things that no other band did. We didn’t fit in with the folk scene; we didn’t fit in with the metal scene; we really didn’t fit in with anything that was going on at that time.

We just always felt like we were outsiders. We felt like we were social debris, we were in our own little world. So “Social Debris” was just the original band writing a song about us, essentially. And it came out sounding like it belonged into 1971. That’s just the original band—you can’t change that; it’s great.”
