Former MEGADETH guitarist Marty Friedman has set a May 20 release date through Steve Vai's Favored Nations label for his new solo album, "Music For Speeding". The jacket design for the CD will be different from the Japanese release, with an Andy Warhol-esque interpretation of a jamming shot of Marty. A South American release date, through Moria Records, will be announced shortly. According to Friedman's official web site, "fans of Marty's first solo album, 'Dragon's Kiss' & his aggressive playing in CACOPHONY & MEGADETH will freak out when they hear that style applied in Marty's new & more modern format . . . This is the kind of playing that Marty's fans wish that he had played for the last few years while he was in MEGADETH."
