Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley is a busy, busy man. Only a few weeks after he confirmed he’s writing with KISS bassist Gene Simmons for his next solo album, Frehley is also streaming an older previously unreleased track and will re-release an expanded reissue of his 2009 album, Anomaly, on September 8.

The guitarist’s fifth solo project mixed original material with a cover of the 1974 UK glam rock single by Sweet, “Fox On The Run” which charted. Of the original album, Frehley says it was aptly named. "There was a lot of pressure on me, because I hadn't done an album in 20 years,” he said. “I wasn't sure it wasn’t going to be well-received. Luckily, it was!”

The updated 2017 edition adds three bonus tracks: “Hard For Me” -  later reworked into the album's opening tune, “Foxy & Free” - a slower version of “Pain In The Neck”, and the previously digital-only bonus track, "The Return Of Space Bear."

Anomaly Deluxe will feature enhanced album art, a new live poster, and extensive liner notes by rock writer and Frehley historian Ron Albanese, including track-by-track commentary by the guitarist himself. It also comes in a 2xLP picture disc edition.

“I think this new edition of the album is great - a special treat for the fans,” says Frehley. “And, with the bonus tracks, they'll get a little more insight into how the album came together.” Frehley’s new recording deal with eMusic is for two further studio albums in coming years.
