Chip Z’Nuff / Perfectly Imperfect solo album confirmed for March release

As Chip Z’Nuff told MetalTalk in part one of our December 2021 interview, his new solo album Perfectly Imperfect will be released on 18 March 2022 via Frontiers. The lead single Heaven In A Bottle is co-written by former Enuff Z’Nuff vocalist Donnie Vie.

“All the songs have been written as I see the world through my rose-coloured glasses,” Chip says. “It’s my heroin letter to the new generation.”

Perfectly Imperfect also contains a cover version of Mott The Hoople’s Honaloochie Boogie, with the remaining eight songs all Chip compositions.

There are guest appearances from Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Steven Adler (Adler’s Appetite, ex-Guns ‘N Roses), Daxx Nielsen (Cheap Trick) and Daniel Hill (Enuff Z’Nuff).

Chip talks about the early years of Enuff Z’Nuff and touring with Badlands, through the emergence of Grunge, and living and working with Steven Adler for six years in part two of the interview, which is available here.
