Founding KISS guitarist and Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Ace Frehley has announced the imminent re-issue of his 2009 “comeback” album, ‘Anomaly‘.
Coming out on September 8th via Entertainment One Music, “Anomaly Deluxe” will feature enhanced album art, a new live poster, and extensive liner notes by rock writer and Ace Frehley historian, Ron Albanese (including track by track commentary by Frehley).
Also, “Anomaly Deluxe” will include new tracks, two of which are unreleased demos. One of those demos, “Hard On Me“, was later reworked into the song “Foxy And Free” on the original Anomaly release. It is streaming below in its earlier demo format. Also included on the new reissue is the previously digital-only Anomaly bonus track “The Return Of Space Bear”.
Frehley commented on the new offering saying:
“I think this new edition of the album is great – a special treat for the fans. And, with the bonus tracks, they’ll get a little more insight into how the album came together.”
