Ellen Foley To Release Fifth Album ‘Fighting Words’

Ellen Foley is heading towards the release of her fifth album. ‘Fighting Words’ is coming in August.

Ellen, who recently reached the benchmark age of 70, hit the studio like a bat out of hell for a pure rock record. The album boasts musicians who have worked with Ozzy Osbourne, Graham Parker and Rufus Wainwright and a memorable collaboration with Karla DeVito in the track ‘I’m Happy Just To Be Here’.

Ellen was the female singer on Meat Loaf’s ‘Paradise By The Dashboard Light’ but when it came time to make a video, Karla DeVito is the person in the video miming Ellen’s part. Karla continued her Meat Loaf trajectory with vocals for Bat Out of Hell creator Jim Steinman’s ‘Bad For Good’ album.

Ellen released her debut album ‘Night Out’ in 1979. The single ‘We Belong To The Night’ reached no 15 in Australia.

‘Fighting Words’ also features the Meat Loaf/Jim Steinman classic ‘Heaven Can Wait’.

‘Fighting Words’ will be released on 6 August 2021.
