Meat Loaf will soon release his next album, Hang Cool Teddy Bear, thanks to a new record deal with Roadrunner Records/Loud & Proud Records.
The singer is slated to release the offering on May 11. Hang Cool Teddy Bear consists of two discs and features 13 songs, with a 14th track available in the Super Deluxe Edition as an iTunes digital download.
“I wanted it big, I wanted it dramatic, I wanted a rock record,” Meat Loaf said in a press release. “Yes, it sounds like a Meat Loaf record. But it sounds different too: it sounds new, it sounds fresh. It speaks to you in a different way.”
The album’s first single, “Los Angeloser,” is expected to be released on April 2.
