Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley has just revealed the cover art to his forthcoming solo disc ‘Space Invader,’ and the artist is a familiar name to longtime Kiss fans.

Ken Kelly painted the out-of-this-world album artwork (pictured). Kelly was also responsible for the artwork on two of Kiss’ earlier releases – 1976’s ‘Destroyer’ and 1977’s ‘Love Gun.’

According to a post on Frehley’s Facebook page, the new collaboration with Kelly had been a long time in the making. “I’ve been talking with Ken Kelly since 2007 about painting a CD Cover for me and it has finally happened,” shared Ace. “I couldn’t be more excited about the new Space Invader cover and the music behind it is also going to rock your world!”

Kelly shared Frehley’s enthusiasm, commenting, “It was very exciting when I was approached with the idea of doing an album cover for Ace.” He continued, “I had spoken to Ace on a few occasions about the possibility, so I was delighted when it actually happened.”

Although it’s been over 35 years since the two have worked together, Kelly has been busy creating his fantasy-based artwork for everything from Conan the Barbarian novels to album covers by bands like Coheed and Cambria and Manowar.

Frehley’s ‘Space Invader’ is out on July 8 via eOne Music and will showcase nine new original tracks and a cover of Steve Miller’s classic ‘The Joker.’
