The early slate of 2021 new music releases was unusually full, after several albums were pushed back in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. At the same time, being off the road apparently gave others space to complete studio recordings as the year continues to unfold.

Alice Cooper found inspiration in his hometown – but that doesn't mean he slipped into easy nostalgia. He says Detroit Stories had to "have a lot of different flavors," admitting that he liked "breaking out of the mode where an Alice Cooper album sounds like an Alice Cooper album."

Former Van Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen also released his new band Mammoth WVH's debut album. He advanced the long-awaited LP with his first solo single, "Distance," which honored Wolfgang's late father Eddie Van Halen, then announced his first show.

The Foo Fighters returned with a nine-song follow-up to 2017's Concrete and Gold. Medicine at Midnight, their 10th album, was confirmed when the group debuted the lead track "Shame Shame" during a live performance on Saturday Night Live.

The Dead Daisies debuted a different lineup for their fifth album. Holy Ground was the first to feature former Black Sabbath and Deep Purple member Glenn Hughes. He's joined by ex-Whitesnake guitarist Doug Aldrich, guitarist David Lowy and onetime Journey drummer Deen Castronovo.

Steve Lukather and Joseph Williams also released tandem solo projects. Both albums featured guest turns by one another, as well as contributions from fellow Toto member David Paich. Ringo Starr also made an appearance on Lukather's record, performing on the lead single "Run to Me." Lukather has been a member of Ringo's All Starr Band since 2012.

Singer Jon Davison and bassist Billy Sherwood of Yes joined with one of the band's current onstage drummers, Jay Schellen, to form an offshoot prog-rock group called Arc of Life. Their self-titled debut also featured guitarist Jimmy Haun (who appeared on Yes' Union album) and keyboard player Dave Kerzner. Davison and Sherwood will also be featured on The Quest, a new album from Yes later in 2021.
