KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons version of the PRODIGY track "Firestarter" has been posted online in Windows Media format at the link.
"Firestarter" is the first single off Simmons highly anticipated sophomore solo album, "Asshole", due on June 8 through Simmons Records/Sanctuary Music Group. A video for the track was filmed last Sunday (April 25) in Los Angeles with directors Mark Klasfeld and Tony Perossian.
Like Genes 1978 self-titled solo album, "Asshole" features a number of outside songwriting contributions and guest appearances. Bob Dylan and Gene co-wrote the albums "Waiting For The Morning Light". Frank Zappa and Gene share co-writing credit on "Black Tongue" and the Zappa Family, Dweezil, Ahmet, Moon, Gail and Frank Zappa himself sing and play guitar on the song. Other guests featured on the album include Dave Navarro, ex-KISS members Bruce Kulick and Eric Singer, new Simmons Records/Sanctuary Music Group signing BAG, as well as Genes longtime live-in Shannon Tweed and their two children, Sophie and Nicholas.
