Paul Stanley and Ace Frehley are back together.
The former KISS band mates teamed up recently to film the video for the song ‘Fire and Water.’ The song, which is a cover of Free’s hit 1970 song, is taken from Frehley’s new covers album Origins Vol. 1. The video was premiered this week exclusively via VEVO. It marks the first time in 18 years that Frehley and Stanley worked together on a music video. The last time that the pair worked together on a music video was for the title track from KISS’ 1998 album Psycho Circus. It also marks the first time in 14 years have even performed together on stage. The last time that they shared the stage was in 2002 at the Olympic Winter Games. What’s more, it marks Frehley’s first music video since releasing the video for his cover of ‘Do Ya.’ That song was also covered by The Move and ELO. Considering Frehley’s comments on working with Stanley on his new video, one must assume that the differences between the musicians are now water under the bridge. “It was great working with Paul again and all the years we’ve spent apart doing other projects seemed to vanish once we hit the stage!,“ he said.
Origins Vol. 1 is the follow-up to Frehley’s 2014 album Space Invader. That album debuted at #9 on Billboard’s Top 200 upon it’s relase. Origins Vol. 1 has made a big splash both with audiences and on the charts since its release earlier this month. It sold more than 16,000 copies nationwide in its first week in stores. Earlier this week it reached the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hard Music Chart, #3 on the magazine’s Rock Chart, and #6 on its Current Chart. Its numbers internationally were just as big. It reached #2 on Sweden’s Hard Rock Chart and #05 on the England Indie Album Breakers Chart.
Along with the new video for the song, it is also streaming online via SoundCloud. Origins Vol. 1 is available now in stores and online. More information on the album is available online now along with all of Frehley’s latest news at:
