earMUSICAlice Cooper‘s latest studio album, Paranormal, won’t hit stores until July 28, but the shock rocker has just released the record’s lead single, a heavy-rocking tune titled “Paranoiac Personality.”

The track is available as a digital download and via streaming services, and you also can check it out at the earMUSIC label’s YouTube channel.

“Paranoiac Personality” is a mid-tempo rocker featuring some blistering guitar work that accompanies Cooper as he growls about the people he’s sure are out to get him.

“I’m smelling a conspiracy, telling lies about me constantly,” Alice sings in the chorus, which boasts a melody that tips its hat to Living Colour‘s “Cult of Personality.” “They follow me, I see them there. Don’t they know that feeds my paranoiac personality?”

The digital single also features a live version of the classic Cooper tune “I’m Eighteen” recorded at a concert in Dallas.

In other news, Cooper has unveiled the complete track list of Paranormal, which comes packaged with a bonus disc featuring two new original songs that Alice wrote and recorded with the other surviving members of the original Alice Cooper band: bassist Dennis Dunaway, drummer Neal Smith and guitarist Michael Bruce. The extra disc also includes six live performances by Cooper’s current group, recorded at a May 2016 show in Columbus, Ohio.
