Ace Frehley has dropped details on his second covers set, “Origins, Vol. 2,” plus released a fresh, animated video for his Deep Purple cover, “Space Truckin’.”

Watch the animated video, which was directed by Ken Gullic and animated by Chris Fequiere, below.

The Deep Purple cover features Frehley on guitar, bass and vocals, with Matt Star on drums and Rob Sabino on keys.

“‘Space Truckin’ was recorded years ago, and then I just re-recorded some parts and changed it a little. We never ended up putting it on a record, so it was just sitting around,” Frehley said in a statement. “It turned out very well. Rob Sabino is a very accomplished studio musician, and we actually grew up in the Bronx together, so we go way back.”

“Space Truckin'” will arrive on “Origins, Vol. 2,” and the rest of the collection features covers by Led Zeppelin, Mountain, Cream, the Beatles and more. View full track listing and cover art below.
