Alice Cooper, the King of Halloween, has a brand-new single celebrating his eternal love for the infernal holiday: “Keepin’ Halloween Alive.”

Fans are encouraged to join in on the fun by entering the “Keepin’ Halloween Alive” Cooper-oke Video Contest, in which they upload videos of themselves singing their own karaoke versions of “Keepin’ Halloween Alive.”

 

Three winners, chosen by Alice Cooper, will have their videos posted on AliceCooper.com and elsewhere, and will be awarded one of three cash prizes: First Place: $1,000, Second Place: $500, and Third Place: $250. All videos must be submitted no later than midnight PDT, October 31st, 2009. Entry details, contest rules and more info available at www.nightswithalicecooper.com

 

Alice delivers “Keepin’ Halloween Alive” with the garage-punk snarl he is best known for, ensuring that it will soon be a Halloween classic. “At home my family all gathers around an old spooky tree decorated with skulls and bones in the living room, and we exchange gifts,” says Cooper. “It’s our holiday. We even all have matching black-and-orange Halloween sweaters!  I wanted a theme song for people like me, and for us Halloween never ends. In the chorus I say, ‘I’m keepin’ Halloween alive, baby, 3–6–5’… and I mean it!”

 

“Keepin’ Halloween Alive,” was co-written and co-produced by Cooper with Piggy D. (a member of Rob Zombie’s band), who played rhythm guitar/backup vocals. Dave Pino (Powerman 5000) is featured on lead guitar, and David Spreng (Engineer for Bob Dylan, The Bravery) mixed the track and played drums. Of the recording, Cooper says, “We played it live as a band to capture the vibe. It was the easiest work I think any of us have ever done, not to mention a blast!”

 

In addition to releasing the new single, Cooper is busy hosting his “Nights with Alice Cooper” radio program, now syndicated on more than 100 stations worldwide, and staying on the road with his Theatre of Death world tour—tour dates below.
