A new Crüe for guitar queen Ori

The Advertiser - - CONFIDENTI­AL -

ADE­LAIDE guitar god­dess Ori­anthi has teamed up with Möt­ley Crüe rocker Nikki Sixx on her new al­bum.

The Los An­ge­les-based muso, be­low, has fi­nally com­pleted work on her fourth solo record and says one of the tracks was writ­ten by the Möt­ley Crüe co-founder.

“(He wrote) killer lyrics. He e-mailed them to me, and I was, like, ‘Woah! These are amaz­ing’,” Ori­anthi told the Aus­tralian Rock Show pod­cast.

“So, yeah, we wrote a song with those lyrics – (pro­ducer) Marti (Fred­erik­sen) and I. I’m re­ally ex­cited for ev­ery­body to hear this record. And hope­fully they dig it as much as we en­joyed mak­ing it.”

Ori­anthi, who’s shared the stage with le­gendary mu­si­cians in­clud­ing Michael Jack­son, Alice Cooper and Car­los San­tana dur­ing her sto­ried ca­reer, says the new al­bum, ti­tled O, will fea­ture a slighty dif­fer­ent sound.

“The thing is you have to keep on evolv­ing and chang­ing,” she ex­plains.

“You don’t make the same record over and over again; I would just bore the hell out of my­self and ev­ery­one else. So I wanna keep on chang­ing.”

The new al­bum is ex­pected to be re­leased this year.
