Meat Loaf is working on not one, not two, but three new albums, and one of them apparently features crunk king Lil Jon and Public Enemy’s Chuck D.
Meat Loaf met Lil Jon after they both appeared on Celebrity Apprentice, while Meat Loaf’s son-in-law, Scott Ian of Anthrax, introduced him to Chuck D. Both will appear on Hell In A Handbasket, which is due out in February.
According to Billboard, the singer also has nine songs in the works for another studio album, which remains untitled. Before he gets to work on that, however, he’s putting together a Christmas record called Hot Holidays that will feature Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, and “different rock people and some actors.”
“After I played Sony [Hell in a Hand Basket] I said, ‘Look, I’ve got two other records. I’ve got a Christmas record and I’ve got another record,’ and they said, ‘Well, get us the Christmas record and start working on the other one.’ So there you go—I’ll just keep recording,” Meat Loaf told Billboard.
