Coming this summer!
Ellen Foley's new album, Fighting Words, will be out this summer. It's a rocking collection of eleven tracks mostly written by her longtime collaborator, Paul Foglino. The album's first single, "I'm Just Happy to Be Here," finds Ellen duetting with Karla DeVito. Both women were featured vocalists during Meat Loaf's mega-platinum Bat Out of Hell period (1977). Additional guests on Fighting Words include bassist C. P. Roth (Ozzy Osbourne, Suzanne Vega, Garland Jeffreys), drummer Steve Goulding (Graham Parker & The Rumour, The Mekons), vocalist Ula Hedwig (Darlene Love, Bette Midler), and many other stellar artists. The album features Ellen's covers of Wilson Pickett's "I Found a Love" and Jim Steinman's "Heaven Can Wait."
Stop. Right. There.
Three words that changed my life forever. Three words that Jim Steinman gave me. Three words that gave me a career in music. And three words that exploded worldwide. Three words penned by the most brilliant, hilarious and unique human being I have ever known.
Jim, "I will love you forever ".
Your Ellen Funky
