LOS ANGELES, Aug. 4 (UPI) -- The sequel to American rocker Alice Cooper's classic 1975 album "Welcome to My Nightmare" is set for release next month, Universal Music Enterprises said.

"Welcome 2 My Nightmare" is to go on sale Sept. 13. It was recorded with Cooper's longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, who produced the original multiplatinum album, the record label said.

"This is Alice's nightmare 35 years later," Cooper said in a statement Monday. "Bob and I created this character and we know how to write for him. I play the part but we're not writing for me, we're writing for Alice. We kept the first 'Nightmare' album very personal to us. On this one, we found more humor and we were more open."

The record label said musically "the album ranges far and wide, from trashing disco to garage punk, pop balladry to a rocking number, very much in the spirit of the Rolling Stones. ... Glimpses of themes from the original album are intertwined throughout, each track representing a different aspect of Alice's nightmare."
