Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider Streams New Song From Broadway Album

Razor & Tie

Dee Snider, the unmistakable frontman of Twisted Sister, will release his new studio album ‘Dee Does Broadway’ on May 8.

The new album features several special guest stars, including Broadway and television icon Bebe Neuwirth on the ‘Damn Yankees’ song ‘Whatever Lola Wants,’ Broadway legend Patti LuPone on a ‘West Side Story’ medley ‘Tonight/Somewhere,’ pop icon Cyndi Lauper on ‘Sweet Charity’s ‘Big Spender,’ Clay Aiken of ‘American Idol’ fame on the ‘Guys and Dolls’ classic ‘Luck Be a Lady Tonight,’ Mark Wood of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra playing violin on the ‘Phantom of the Opera’ ballad ‘Music Of The Night,’ as well a special rendition of ‘The Joint Is Jumpin’ from ‘Ain’t Misbehavin” with Dee’s oldest son, Jesse “Blaze” Snider.

Songs are also featured from classic Broadway shows including ‘Cabaret,’ ‘Chicago,’ ‘The Threepenny Opera,’ ‘Anything Goes,’ and ‘Sweeney Todd.’

Check out Snider’s take on ‘Cabaret’ below.

‘Dee Does Broadway’ will coincide with the release of his first ever autobiography, ‘Shut Up and Give Me the Mic’ on May 8. The new album was spawned from a number of voicemails exchanged featuring “Broadway Tunes” sung as messages between Dee Snider and Alice Cooper in 2009 and Dee’s 2010 Broadway run in the Broadway rock musical ‘Rock of Ages.’ Inspired to take this musical journey, the classically trained countertenor (who sang with his high school choir and always loud as hell) Snider enlisted producers Bob Kulick and Brett Chassen. The album was mixed by the legendary Ric Wake and Gustavo Celis, and features the incredible orchestrations and playing by the renowned composer/arranger Doug Katsaros and the bass guitar playing of one of rock’s prolific players, the legendary Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, Whitesnake).

Dee Snider explains the process, “Over the past year I have worked closely with my team and collaborators picking from decades of musical hits with only two rules: The song had to speak to me as a singer on some level, and it could not be a rock song to begin with. No ‘Jesus Christ Superstar,’ ‘Grease,’ ‘Hair,’ ‘Rent,’ ‘Rocky Horror,’ etc. What would be the challenge in that?” He continues, “There are many who think doing an album of rocked out show tunes is pure insanity on my part. Apparently, they haven’t seen any photos of me from the ’70s and ’80s. Could I have been in a more theatrical band? Ever since I was a kid, I’d heard the real power inherent in a lot of songs from musicals and this record gives me the chance to show it.”

‘Dee Does Broadway’ will be out May 8 via Razor & Tie.
