The Pretty Reckless are back with their first album of material since “Death by Rock and Roll”

The Pretty Reckless have announced a new project, dubbed “Other Worlds,” set to arrive later this year. While this marks the first release since the band’s fourth studio album, “Death by Rock and Roll,” it’s not a normal album. “Other Worlds” will feature a handful of covers, plus acoustic versions and remixes of some of their “Death by Rock and Roll” tracks.

In advance of the upcoming release, the band has posted a remixed version of the song “Got So High.” Listen to the cut and view the album’s full track listing below.

“Other Worlds” will feature a plethora of special guests, including Matt Cameron, who performed guitar with frontwoman Taylor Momsen on a cover of Soundgarden’s King Animal track “Halfway There”; David Bowie pianist Mike Garson, who appears on a version of The Thin White Duke’s “Quicksand”; and multi-instrumentalist Alain Johannes, who plays on acoustic cover of Chris Cornell’s “The Keeper.”

“For a long time, we’ve been trying to figure out an alternative way of releasing music, including songs we love that didn’t make our records, covers, and alternate versions,” Momsen said in a press release. She added, “We found a way to do this coherently and consistently with Other Worlds. We’re a rock band, so there are lots of electric guitars on our records. However, we’ve gotten incredible feedback from fans about our acoustic performances, and we’d never put those out in any real format. So, this is a different take on the traditional format of a record and a stripped back version of us that our fans haven’t really heard before, but it’s still us.”

Guitarist Ben Phillips added, “You get to hear a different side of Taylor’s vocals. It was a chance for us to see what she would sound like singing songs by people who have inspired us. It also gave us some perspective of where we need to go and what we need to be if we want to be that good.”

“Other Worlds” will will drop Nov. 4 via Fearless Records and is available for pre-order here. The Pretty Reckless are currently on tour in Canada. After they wrap up that run, the group will hit the U.S. and then Europe. Find tour dates here.
