Alice Cooper’s ‘Hey Stoopid’ Album Getting Reissued

Alice Cooper, 'Hey Stoopid'

Alice Cooper‘s 19th album is returning to stores with a few extra tracks.

‘Hey Stoopid,’ originally released in 1991, was recorded during a period of renewed commercial success for Cooper. His previous LP, 1989’s ‘Trash,’ spawned the Top 10 hit ‘Poison.’ When the time came to make the follow-up, a long list of Cooper’s hard-rock buddies came out for the sessions, including Slash, Ozzy Osbourne, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars of Motley Crue. While the results weren’t quite as potent in terms of sales — ‘Hey Stoopid’ stalled at No. 47 on the chart, while the title track only made it as far as No. 78 on the Billboard Hot 100 — it remains one of Cooper’s higher-profile releases.

On Sept. 23, Hear No Evil Recordings will release an expanded edition of ‘Hey Stoopid’ that adds three bonus tracks: ‘It Rained All Night’ (previously released as a ‘Hey Stoopid’ B-side), a cover of Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Fire’ (originally issued as a B-side to the ‘Love’s a Loaded Gun’ single) and the ‘Hey Stoopid Beba Edit’ (originally released on the ‘Hey Stoopid’ CD single). The label’s press release doesn’t mention anything about remastering on the album, which is currently in print in its original incarnation.

For fans looking forward to new music from Cooper, the wait appears to be almost over: He recently revealed that his upcoming covers album should be out in spring 2014.
