Album: Sweetzerland Manifesto
Release Date: January 19th
The latest solo effort from the Aerosmith/Hollywood Vampires guitarist is a cameo-studded affair produced by Perry himself. New York Dolls frontman David Johansen, Ringo Starr's son Zak Starkey and British belter Terry Reid are among the guests on Sweetzerland, which has "a wide variety of tunes," according to Perry. Robin Zander of Cheap Trick handles vocals on the howling "Aye, Aye, Aye," the product of a songwriting process Perry describes as "as fast as a ride on a Japanese bullet train." Perry and his guests co-wrote all of the album's tracks save one: A cover of the '60s apocalypse protest "Eve of Destruction," which features fellow Hollywood Vampire Johnny Depp on drums.
