TOMMY LEE's New Solo Album Will Include 'Literally Every Single Different Genre That You Could Imagine'

MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee spoke to Billboard about his upcoming solo album, which is tentatively due in March 2020. Lee spent two years working on the disc, which he may end up calling "Trans Genres" "because one side is all female energy and the other side of the record is all male," he said. "It's very eclectic, and I think everyone's gonna really enjoy it. That's what I've been excited about lately. What a labor of love."

According to Tommy, his new album will include "literally every single different genre that you could imagine. That's why I want to call it 'Trans Genres' because it's literally all over the place, which I love," he added. "It's my favorite thing. I love swishing it up from track to track. But this is literally a whole side of one kind of eclectic thing and one side of the other kind of eclectic thing. I like records like that. I don't like records that sound like it's pretty much the same thing."

The LP will include a "slowed-down" and "insane" cover of Prince's "When You Were Mine" as well as guest appearances by South African rapper Push Push, PLYA singer Julia, a singer called Ellie, rap battlist Shotty Horroh, former ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA frontman Lukas Rossi and U.K. hip-hop/dubstep group FOREIGN BEGGARS.

Lee's METHODS OF MAYHEM rap-rock side project released its self-titled debut album in 1999 and was certified gold in the U.S. A follow-up effort, "A Public Disservice Announcement", came out 11 years later.

Lee's last solo LP was 2005's "Tommyland: The Ride". He also collaborated with METHODS OF MAYHEM's DJ Aero on the "#MSND" EP, which was released in 2013.
