Corey Feldman Celebrates Turning 45 & Speaks On New Double Album
“I feel very grateful and very lucky to be alive still, to have any kind of semblance of normal life,” Feldman told NBC Bay Area.
The Goonies star explained that he still does at least one movie a year, dividing his time between acting and recording music.
Feldman’s latest album titled Angelic 2 the Core, has been in the works for ten years — and was finally released on June 22 — his first full solo album since 2002’s Former Child Actor.
The actor revealed he wrote or co-wrote on 22 tracks, excluding a cover of John Lennon’s “Working Class Hero.”
Feldman shared that as he recovered from his second divorce and the deaths of his grandfather and close friends Michael Jackson and Corey Haim, he dived into music. He built a recording studio in his house and practiced on every instrument.
Angelic 2 the Core features such artists as Snoop Dogg and Fred Durst, and Feldman plays the drums, keyboard, bass and guitar on multiple tracks.
The album consists of electronica, hip-hop, hard rock and even a gospel choir. Disc one is all dance music and dedicated to Jackson; Disc two is rock-based and dedicated to Haim.
“There’s something for everyone,” Feldman said.
The actor admitted that many of the song lyrics throughout the album are personal and positive — with tracks for his girlfriend Courtney Anne and his 11-year-old son Zen.
“I am blessed to have a beautiful child, a beautiful home, a beautiful girlfriend and a beautiful career,” Feldman remarked. “I don’t take any of it for granted.”
