Lita Ford has spoken of a reunion of The Runaways and said that she would "love it" to happen.
When asked "will there be a Runaways reunion?" in an interview with The Naperville Sun, Lita said; "I would love it. I can't answer that question, but I would love it. We were ahead of our time. Now, people are realizing we were ahead of our time. We inspired so many different artists, and not just girls."

Lita is currently working on new material and hopes to have an album out next spring.
"The songs are great. I'm so happy with them," she said. "It's some of the best stuff I've ever written. That's what good songs are made of, real life stories.
"A lot of people will be able to relate in many different ways. If you lose a job or a boyfriend or a loved one, of if you're just having a bad day. There are songs about hurtful things, and songs about how to overcome those hurtful things. Musically, everything is just as rocking."
Legendary guitarist Gary Hoey is co-producing the album.
"It's a very inspiring album for a lot of people," she said. "I'm looking forward to people hearing it. It's an empowering album and it really comes from the heart."
Lita is also heavily involved in Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp with Camp founder David Fishof.
"It's a challenge because they give you these people who don't play instruments, and you're supposed to make them into rock stars," she said. "And you do. You come out of there and these people are literally playing rock 'n' roll. It's a dream come true for them.
“We had Paul Stanley from Kiss come up and jam with people onstage. Just to have him onstage with them jamming... it was like a dream come true for some people. It was a life-changing experience."
