Nita Strauss has been a part of Alice Cooper's live band since 2014 and is finally getting the chance to play on one of his records. Strauss said in an interview with Meltdown that she's currently the only member of Cooper's live band not to have played on a record, and considers playing on the new one a huge honor.

"I actually have a call with [Alice Cooper's management] this weekend to discuss the progress of it. The last that I heard, we were in Nashville working on it. The band and I sat down and recorded quite a bit of music for this upcoming record. The band did also have a huge part in the writing this time, which is the first time that's happened in the eight years that I've been in the band. So it was really, really fun — really exciting for us to get to work with a legend like Bob Ezrin. [It was] a huge, huge honor to be in the studio with him and Alice creating what we hope will be some more Alice Cooper music to just add to his legacy."

"I'm on the live DVD. I'm on the live album releases, the live tracks that are bonus tracks and stuff, but [this is my] first studio album with Alice. I'm actually the only person in the band that hasn't recorded anything with Alice before, so this is huge for me. [I'm] very, very honored."

Strauss added that she has no idea when the record will come out. In the meantime, Strauss is also working on her new "half instrumental, half vocal" solo album. You can catch Cooper on tour at one of the many dates below.
