LITA FORD Is Working On 'Dark' And 'Riffy' New Album

'80s hard rock queen Lita Ford has confirmed that she is about to begin work on a new studio album, to be released later in the year. Helming the project once again is guitarist/producer Gary Hoey, who previously worked with Lita on 2012's "Living Like A Runaway" disc.

Asked by VintageRock.com at this past weekend's NAMM show in Anaheim, California how her new music is shaping up, Lita said: "It's dark, it's riffy — lots of guitar. I'm gonna really let the guitar flow on this one. So that's exciting."

Lita added that she will "take a break" from touring "for a little" while she completes the next record. But she promised that she will be back on the road soon after having "a huge, huge" 2016, which saw her and her solo band play "a hundred shows," including two months' worth of dates with HALESTORM.

Ford'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).
