Ex-Runaways singer Cherie Currie announced the release of an all-star album that was recorded five years ago but it was shelved for this month through Blackheart Records. The album features Duff McKagan, Billy Corgan, Juliette Lewis, Brody Dalle and more. “All these wonderful artists — Brody Dalle as well — really wanted to participate in this record. Little did I know how much The Runaways had influenced so many people. It made me feel so good.
“But that record was shelved for five years.
“They (Blackheart Records) wanted to put it out now. I negotiated with them instead of through my lawyer who I had to let go — two lawyers actually.
“It will be coming out in September. I never thought it would see the light of day.”
