From : eOne / Entertainment One Ltd
Ace Frehley has released the official music video for his cover version of the DEEP PURPLE classic "Space Truckin'". The track, which was recorded at The Creation Lab in Turlock, California with drummer Matt Starr and keyboard player Rob Sabino, will appear on "Origins Vol. 2", the sequel to Ace's 2016 collection of cover songs that inspired the former KISS guitarist, due on September 18 via eOne. The animated video was directed by eOne's Ken Gullic and animated by Chris Fequiere.

"'Space Truckin' was recorded years ago, and then I just re-recorded some parts and changed it a little," Frehley said in a statement. "We never ended up putting it on a record, so it was just sitting around. It turned out very well. Rob Sabino is a very accomplished studio musician, and we actually grew up in the Bronx together, so we go way back."

It was previously reported that "Origins Vol. 2" would feature guest appearances by Lita Ford (on THE ROLLING STONES' "Jumpin' Jack Flash"), CHEAP TRICK's Robin Zander (on HUMBLE PIE's "30 Days In The Hole", former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick (on Jimi Hendrix's "Manic Depression", ROB ZOMBIE's John 5 (on BEATLES' "I'm Down" and CREAM's "Politician")

Junly 23 : ACE FREHLEY teases cover of DEEP PURPLE's 'Space Truckin'' from 'Origins Vol. 2' Album
From : Blabbermouth.net
Ace Frehley has shared a teaser for his cover version of the DEEP PURPLE classic "Space Truckin'". The track will appear on "Origins Vol. 2", the sequel to his 2016 collection of cover songs that inspired the former KISS guitarist, due later in the year via eOne.

Frehley's full version of "Space Truckin'" is expected to make its online debut on Tuesday, July 28.

It was previously reported that "Origins Vol. 2" would feature guest appearances by Lita Ford (on THE ROLLING STONES' "Jumpin' Jack Flash"), CHEAP TRICK's Robin Zander (on HUMBLE PIE's "30 Days In The Hole", former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick (on Jimi Hendrix's "Manic Depression") and ROB ZOMBIE's John 5 (on BEATLES' "I'm Down" and CREAM's "Politician").

Last year, Frehley told The Weekender that "Origins Vol. 2" will once again feature a LED ZEPPELIN tune, "Good Times Bad Times". He also revealed that he wanted to lay down the vocals for "30 Days In The Hole" himself, but that he "just couldn't cut it, vocally, because [Steve] Marriott's just too good of a goddamn singer. I just couldn't do justice to his vocals," he explained. "But I remembered that I had bumped into Robin Zander years ago at a meet-and-greet and he had mentioned to me that he'd like to sing on one of my upcoming records, so I remembered that and gave him a call. And he killed it as well. He sounds like a young Marriott."

Released in April 2016, "
Origins Vol. 1" debuted at No. 23 on The Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 16,000 equivalent album units.
