Today sees the release of the highly anticipated NEW album 'Living Like A Runaway', from Metal Icon LITA FORD via Steamhammer/SPV. The album will be available in four configurations: a double LP, limited edition CD, standard CD and digital download.
LITA commented on the release of 'Living Like a Runaway':
"The new album 'Living Like A Runaway' is finally ready for the universe to hear. You will feel it your bones when you listen to it. So get your NEW CD, put it in your car (or wherever your favorite place is to listen to music is) and BLAST IT LOUDER THAN LOUD!!!"
In celebration of the release RollingStone.com the online home of Rolling Stone Magazine is hosting an exclusive stream of the entire album. Listen to Living Like a Runaway in its entirety HERE.
FORD is beyond stoked to be sharing the new album with the help of Rolling Stone:
"Thanks to Rolling Stone for all their support and for streaming 'Living Like A Runaway' in its entirety!!! Rolling Stone rocks it big time as usual!!!"
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.
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.
Coinciding with the album's release, LITA is hitting the road this summer with Def Leppard and Poison on the "Rock of Ages Tour". In addition to the dates with Def Leppard and Poison, LITA has confirmed additional headlining shows during the run.
