Mötley Crüe to Release Four New Songs; Nikki Sixx Teases Big Surprise


In August, we learned that members of Mötley Crüe were in the studio with their old Dr. Feelgood producer, Bob Rock, and we wondered if they were working on new music for the upcoming movie version of the infamous biography, The Dirt. We somehow missed it, but in September, singer Vince Neil confirmed that they’re doing exactly that:

“Exciting news! I’ll be going back in recording studio in a few weeks with the boys to record 4 brand new Motley Crue tracks! Rock On!!”

Now Nikki Sixx has taken to Twitter to build hype for the music… and that’s not exciting on its own, because of course he’s gonna do that. But the really interesting part of what he wrote comes at the end, when he reveals that the band “have a surprise that will confirm that we’re outta our minds”:

“Fück can I just say it? I’m listening to the roughs of the new and it feels real and raw.Everybody is playing like mad and the songs crush. Bob Rock brought the sounds. Plus we have a surprise that will confirm that we’re outta our minds. ????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Although the Crüe are done touring, they never said they wouldn’t play live together again, so if I had to hazard a guess, I’d say this surprise probably has something to do with a special show. But obviously there are other possibilities. Sixx could just mean that the band has a surprise in one of these new songs. I don’t know what surprise would “confirm” that Mötley Crüe’s members are “outta our minds,” though. Did they rope in someone cool for a duet? Neil’s onetime replacement, John Corabi? Neil’s longtime rival, Axl Rose? Neil’s drinking buddy, Nicolas Cage?

No idea. The Dirt will be out on Netflix in 2019, so we may not know ’til then.
