We just finished a new album "Hell In A Handbasket" with Meat Loaf. Very exciting for me, I have recorded all drum tracks in my own home studio "Sound Check". Which was Mixed by Chris Lord Alge, and produced by Paul Crook.
Well it looks like my next project will be a Meat Loaf Christmas album. I better order a set of sleigh-bells.
Here is an article from Billboard and contactmusic.com
Meat Loaf has been working with rapper Chuck D and producer Lil Jon on his new album 'Hell In A Handbasket'.
The 'Bat out of Hell' singer collaborated with the Public Enemy frontman - famed for his uncompromising political lyrics - and Lil Jon, best known for Usher's track 'Yeah', on songs for his new album, 'Hell In A Handbasket'.
Talking about Chuck D's contribution, he explained: "D was going to do one thing, and he came back and did something else and we flipped out."
Despite working with the hip hop musicians on some songs, the operatic singer reassured the album is "rock, definitely rock," and "the most personal record I've ever made."
He added to Billboard.com: "It's about how I feel the world's gone to hell in a handbasket.
"It's really the first record that I've ever put out about how I feel about life and how I feel about what's going on at the moment."
He added he's working on another solo album to come out after 'Hell In A Handbasket' and also planning a Christmas album.
Meat Loaf said: "After I played [record company] Sony 'Hell in a Hand Basket' I said, 'Look, I've got two other records. I've got a Christmas record and I've got another record,' and they said, 'Well, get us the Christmas record and start working on the other one.' So there you go - I'll just keep recording."
