Metal Icon LITA FORD is gearing up for the release of her NEW album 'Living Like A Runaway', which will be unleashed June 19th in North America via SPV/Steamhammer. The album will be available in four configurations: a double LP, limited edition CD, standard CD and digital download.
Tonight Eddie Trunk will be exclusively premiering a song from 'Living Like a Runaway' on his radio show "Friday Night Rocks" which airs live from 11:00 PM - 2:00 AM EST on Q104.3 in New York. For those that are out of the New York area, the show can be accessed via the iHeartRadio app, by selecting Q104.3 NYC. For more information on the iHeartRadio app, visit http://www.iheartradio.com.
LITA FORD has teamed up with producer Gary Hoey and lyricist Michael Dan Ehmig to work on 'Living Like a Runaway'. Together the team invested a lot of time and effort into this kick ass project: "We worked on the lyrics intensively to really give the songs a lot of meaning and that special emotional depth. I think that these are some of the best lyrics ever, period. FORD is referring to numbers such as "Devil In My Head", "Hate", and "The Asylum" which see her bare her soul in a way which she has never done before.
Decibel Magazine is hosting a stream of the song "Mother" HERE.

Unlike many albums today, 'Living Like a Runaway' is an album that truly must be heard in its entirety from start to finish. "Listeners shouldn't pick out individual tracks but listen to the full album," says FORD. "It's a fascinating musical journey, inspired by Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side of the Moon'. I had seen a documentary about 'Dark Side of the Moon' and it really motivated me to focus on 'Living Like a Runaway' as a whole journey rather just an individual song.
Coinciding with the album's release, LITA is hitting the road this summer with Def Leppard and Poison on the "Rock of Ages Tour". All dates for the tour including the newly announced second leg can be found below.
Following the demise of the Runaways, LITA FORD concentrated on her own career and now looks back on many memorable hits including: the chart topping duet with Ozzy Osbourne "Close Your Eyes Forever" "What Do You Know About Love", "Shot Of Poison", "Larger Than Life" and "Kiss Me Deadly". With the release of Living Like A Runaway, expect many more songs to be added to the list of hits.
