MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars has confirmed that his debut solo album will be released in April next year.
The guitarist has been working on the record, on and off, for at least the past four years. The album is being recorded in Nashville with producer Michael Wagener (Ozzy Osbourne, ACCEPT, WARRANT, SKID ROW) at Blackbird Studio.
Mars confirmed the news on his Twitter after a fan asked him on the status of the album, to which guitarist responded: “No one will ever stand in the way of my solo record. Ever. Watch for it in April . 2020.”
“It’s not like today’s music, which to me is pretty much pop metal and more growly guys,” Mars told Billboard this past September on musical direction of the album. “It’s all cool and it’s all good, and I’m just searching for something that’s just a little different than that. I [also] don’t want to be living in ’85. It’s hard to reinvent yourself, but that’s what I’m doing now. I’m trying to reinvent the way that I approach music writing. I’ve got a lot of crap, and I’ve got a lot of good stuff too.”
