Suzi Quatro has returned to the studio with Mike Chapman, the producer who wrote her hits “Can The Can” and “48 Crash.”
The album, currently being recorded, will be titled In The Spotlight and will include modern songs reinterpreted with a rock edge. Chapman and partner Nicky Chinn were prolific producers and songwriters in the 1970s, and were responsible for hits such as The Sweet’s “Ballroom Blitz,” Smokie’s “Needles and Pins,” Racey’s “Lay Your Love On Me” and “Some Girls,” and Exile’s “Kiss You All Over.” Chapman produced The Knack’s Get The Knack, featuring the hit “My Sharona,” as well as Blondie’s Parallel Lines, Eat to the Beat, Autoamerican and The Hunter.
Quatro is in the process of nailing down a release date for the album.
Oh and y’know who else recorded a version of “Mickey”? Me! Listen!
