Joey Ramone's second posthumous album will feature lost songs the punk icon wrote with his brother Mickey Leigh and members of the Plasmatics and Dictators.
Joan Jett, Steven Van Zandt, former Ramones drummer Richie Ramone, Bun E. Carlos of Cheap Trick and guitarist Lenny Kaye are among the stars who have come forward to help Leigh complete the album, ... Ya Know?, which will be released in May (12) - and now the late star's brother has opened up about the track listing.
It features demos and unreleased recordings from the last 15 years of Joey's life, according to
Tracks include Rock 'n' Roll Is the Answer, which Ramone wrote with Plasmatics guitarist Richie Stotts and Make Me Tremble, which the Ramones frontman wrote and recorded with DICtators star Andy Shernoff.
And there's a couple of brotherly love moments on the album - I Couldn't Sleep is a collaboration between Joey and Mickey, who also teamed up to revamp the Ramones' festive hit Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight Tonight).
Van Zandt has written liner notes for the album.
