Holy Glam! Out of the blue, Tom Keifer just released new music! Tom released two songs, "Solid Ground" and "The Flower Song" via his website and also his new Facebook page.
There weren't any YouTube clips of the song yet, so you'll have to go to Tom's website to listen. basically both songs sound like Heartbreak Station-era Cinderella. There's also a bit of a country twang as well (just a little, not too much).
It's interesting that Tom decided to release a couple solo songs instead of working on something with Cinderella, but I'm just happy for the new music. Maybe a solo album will actually see the light of day. It's been promised to us for years now. A couple months ago, Tom officially announced his solo record would be released (but I remain skeptical). Here's that press release from back in August:
August 20, 2012 -- Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Tom Keifer is finally releasing his long-awaited and highly anticipated solo album in the Spring of 2013 after entering into a partnership with Merovee Records (a joint venture with Worldwide Pants, Inc.). The as-yet-untitled collection of 14 new songs ranges from intimate, organic, acoustic tracks to driving hard rock. It embraces the blues, rock and country roots that have always been present in his unique sound that has generated the sale of over 15 million records worldwide.
The upcoming release is a raw, introspective look at the roller coaster ride that has been Keifer's life for the past 15 years. From being told that he would never sing again as a result of a partially paralyzed left vocal cord, to the emotional and personal battles that followed, his solo debut is a story of perseverance, a testament to the power of passion and will, when combined with a true love of music.
Cinderella will play the Monsters of Rock Cruise March 2013.
