Listen: Nita Strauss shares heavy, shreddy new single, 'Summer Storm'

The guitarist 'returns to her roots' on instrumental track

Nita Strauss may have left Alice Cooper’s band behind – at least for now – for relatively poppier pastures with Demi Lovato, but she can still clearly grind it out on guitar with the best of them.

For the latest proof, check out Strauss’ brand-new instrumental single, “Summer Storm,” the first new music from her forthcoming second solo album.

Strauss recently spoke to Revolver about the song, calling it “a return to [her] roots.” As for the new album, which will be the follow-up to 2018’s Controlled Chaos, she said, “The album is going to be half instrumental, half with guest vocalists. So I felt like it was important to have an instrumental song come out next to make sure that the world knows that I'm not completely abandoning my style.”
