VIA ENTERTAINMENT ONE
Toronto, ON – September 3, 2020 – Founding KISS guitarist and Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame member, Ace Frehley, shared the second single from his highly-anticipated second collection of 11 rock 'n' roll covers titled, Origins Vol. 2, in the form of The Beatles’ 1965 b-side, I’m Down. Featuring John 5, the cover kicks the classic track into high gear with shredding solos and Frehley’s on-point vocals, sounding at the top of his game.
Due out on September 18 via Entertainment One (eOne), Origins Vol. 2 continues Frehley’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.
Origins Vol. 2 features some extraordinary guests, including Robin Zander of Cheap Trick on Humble Pie's 30 Days In The Hole, and former KISS comrade, Bruce Kulick, on Jimi Hendrix's Manic Depression. Origins Vol. 1 alumnus John5 also returns, playing on Cream's Politician, and I'm Down. Finally, the exquisite Lita Ford returns on vocals, this time on The Rolling Stones' 1968 hit, Jumpin' Jack Flash. Origins Vol. 2 will be the follow-up to 2016’s Origins Vol. 1, which hit #23 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and was his second highest-charting solo album and his 4th Top 40 album.
