LITA FORD To Release 'Surprise' Single In July

Lita Ford has told Digital Journal in a new interview that she is planning to release a standalone song this summer. "We have a single that is a surprise for the fans, which is really cool," she revealed. "It will be out on 4th of July and it is bad to the bone, and I am really proud of it. It's a cover tune. It is going to hit home with a lot of people."

Lita has spent the last few months working on new music with guitarist/producer Gary Hoey, who previously collaborated with her on 2012's "Living Like A Runaway" disc.

Last fall, Ford said that her new songs were turning out "pretty badass. It's just been Gary Hoey and I so far," she said. "Him and I get along so well in the studio, it's just ridiculous. I start a sentence and he finishes it. We've really got a feel for music in the studio, so we work well together. And I think he will most likely be the one to finish out the album."

Lita went on to say that she "did write a couple of songs with some other people, which are real good. And we may use them. They need to be remixed — the demos; they're just demos right now — but they do need to be remixed," she said. "Whereas Gary and I, we do a demo and it sounds like a master. So it's going great. I'm excited. I didn't think I was gonna be able to beat 'Living Like A Runaway', but I think I have."

Ford told VintageRock.com in January 2017 that her next album would be "dark" and "riffy" with "lots of guitar." She added: "I'm gonna really let the guitar flow on this one. So that's exciting."

Lita's last release was 2016's "Time Capsule", a collection of songs that were recorded by Ford in the past, but never before made available. "Time Capsule" was tracked after her 1988 "Lita" album — a time when, as Ford put it, "we had a break between recordings and it seemed so many of us were always in the same place, at the same time." Some of the album's featured guests: Billy Sheehan (bass), Rodger Carter (drums), Dave Navarro (mandolin), Jeff Scott Soto (vocals), Rick Nielsen and Robin Zander (backing vocals) and Gene Simmons (bass).

Lita's autobiography, "Living Like A Runaway: A Memoir", was released two years ago via Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.
