Alice Cooper celebrates his birthday today with the release of the single “Social Debris” from his upcoming studio album Detroit Stories.
Cooper has decided to offer “Social Debris” as free download for 24 hours from the website www.alicecooper-detroitstories.com.
“The single “Social Debris” is a gift to Detroit, to my fans and to myself,” Cooper said. “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,” Cooper said. “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.”
