Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper) Releases New Song “Dead Inside” Featuring Disturbed’s David Draiman

  • Axl Rosenberg

Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss has released a new solo track, “Dead Inside,” featuring vocals by David Draiman from Disturbed. It’s pretty good save for Draiman’s singing. Or, to put it more kindly, it’s the best song on which Draiman has ever sung.

Says Strauss of the team-up:

“This is my first time releasing my own music with a vocalist, and I am so honored to take this step alongside a legend like David Draiman. David’s voice and powerful lyrics took this song to a level I could never have imagined! And we are so excited to unleash this song on the world.”

Adds Draiman:

“Serendipity can be really cool. We’ve been friends for years. Nita sent me the track… I didn’t have time to work on it right away… then, in literally a couple of days, while killing time in Santa Monica, the whole thing just came together. Incredibly proud of how it turned out and honored to be a part of it.”

You can check out “Dead Inside” via the below music video. There’s still no word on when Strauss will release a follow-up to her 2018 solo debut, Controlled Chaos, but surely it can’t be too far off.

Strauss is currently touring with Cooper, then goes on a solo run in November. Here are all of her upcoming live dates:
