That article mentions 2 songs from the original group, either it's wrong or there could be 2 on paranormal and 3 on the bonus disk.

Single will be out next week according to Bob Davison : Alice Cooper's new song - "Paranormal Personality" will be out next week. So get on down to your local record shop and pick yourself up this groovy new tune to spin at the dance. The other side features the rock-n-roll standard, "HITCHHIKE" done by those crazy boys from Phoenix. Get in the swing, kids! :)
(For the Sarcasm Impaired: Paranormal Personality was performed by a current rendition of the Alice Cooper band and not the originals.)

Is the Trump administration in charge of releasing the information for the new album? Because they are making this confusing as hell... Maybe they should stick with hidden messages in videos.

devon, I'm sure you the will get the clarification your looking for soon when the tracklisting is announced, which I'm sure will be soon as well. This is quite confusing this mixup with the number of songs.

Did anyone ever stop to think the conflicting information is on-purpose?

It keeps people guessing. No one knows what's coming.

Giving away all of the info prior to release takes the fun out of it.

I remember a time when you didn't know anything about an album until the day it was released!

Now people complain if they don't get the track running times six months prior to release!

Can I please go back to 1983?!

Ironic the real interest in what is on cd is how many band songs are on there.

I'd rather go back to the days when we knew nothing prior to release also. Would be much better than these clumsy reveals or misinformation campaign they are running...

No, because that would be incredibly stupid if it's on purpose. It's just conflicting info that needs cleared.

genuinely couldnt care less. I want good songs, thats the beginning and end of it. I know the romantic notion is everything the band touches turns to gold but that simply isnt the case or we would have had allot more contributions over the years. I know loads of you think the 3 best songs on W2MN were the band songs, thats fine, i dont agree at all but thats just personal taste.

I want a new alice cooper album and i dont care where the tunes come from, if they are good, i'm in!

Not just the best three songs, but the only three songs that should have been released on W2MN were the ACG songs. If more songs would have been made like the bonus tracks sure, but that is the worst Alice album if you take off the three ACG songs, and I'll Bite Your Face Off could have been lyrically stronger.

Nights with alice cooper link also saying paranormal will feature 2 songs from the original band.

Could be possible the actual album itself will feature 2 songs and the bonus disk 3 as mentioned previously.

Bonus disks usually aint classed as part of the LP, so in reality there could be 5 with the bonus disk inclided

I think it's safe to assume that one of the songs is the American Girl one as Billy Gibbons is on that one. There is still one missing band song if they did cut six.

That's for the Japanese edition (I hope).

Only real interest for some people who only happen to be quite vocal, yes. And coincidently they also seem to think they are the holders of all the right opinions and all of good taste, too.

I just want as many and as good songs as I can get.

Here, here! Original band be damned, they are not now, or have ever been the guardians of great song writing. I'm an unashamed fan of alice solo (as well as band) and i get sick of people trying to ignore or shrug off his wonderful solo career.

Im excited, the new album is not the best or worst but "ok" BRING IT ON!
