Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy will release his first solo album next year.

The American vocalist yesterday announced his signing to Napalm Records, who will bring out the full-length Year of the Tiger in the spring of 2018.

In a statement, the Austrian label further discussed the new deal: “He is the distinctive voice of Alter Bridge. He as well gained incredible recognition with being the voice of Slash‘s back band Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. He jammed with members of Led Zeppelin, he worked with the best of the best… he is undeniably one of the greatest rock singers of our time.
