Part one of a brand new radio interview with Ace Frehley conducted by "Elliot in the Morning" has been made available for download at this location.

Frehley is aiming for a spring 2008 release date for his new solo album. The guitarist — who recently celebrated one year of sobriety after relapsing during the summer of 2006 — has finished recording around 10 new songs for the effort but is looking to lay down two or three more in the next couple of months in order to make the CD "really special," he revealed during an appearance on the "Friday Night Rocks" radio show.

Ace's new album was reportedly recorded with a trio of Ace, Anton Fig on drums and new bassist Anthony Esposito (LYNCH MOB).

Frehley performed at Eddie Trunk's Halloween Bash 2007 at the Hard Rock Café in New York City on October 31. Watch fan-filmed video footage from the concert below.
