Nikki Sixx Announces The Release Date Of His New Song Inspired By His Memoir, ‘The First 21’


Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx revealed the release date of his new ‘hits’ album, which will celebrate his memoir ‘The First 21,’ and announced that there will be a new song in the album with the same name.

Nikki Sixx is not a stranger to creating a story out of his life. With Mötley Crüe, the bassist revealed the band’s dirty secrets and crazy experiences while leading a rock and roll lifestyle in their memoir ‘The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band.’ That memoir received a lot of attention and was later adapted into a film in 2019.

The bassist later released a memoir that featured excerpts from his journals called ‘The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star.’ With his book, Nikki revealed his experiences and struggles with drug addiction, and it ranked at No. 7 on The New York Times Bestseller list.

Recently he announced that his memoir called ‘The First 21’ will be released on October 19, 2021, and Sixx seems excited about it. He recently shared posts that revealed he is working on the audiobook and encouraged people to pre-order it online. Most recently, he tweeted that there will be an album released on October 22, 2021, only three days after the memoir. 

Here is his announcement tweet:

“Sixx: AM announces ‘Hits’ album set for October 22 release pre-order/pre-save now on Sixx:A.M.’s official website. The celebratory project arrives days after Nikki Sixx’s highly anticipated memoir ‘The First 21,’ coming October 19. The album includes a new song by the same name, inspired by the book.

He also revealed the number of songs as follows:

“20 songs in all, including 6 news songs. Thank you.”

The bassist excited his fans by stating that there will be six new songs and a track called ‘The First 21,’ inspired by the book. Some users said they already loved the track, even before they heard it, and shared the screenshots of their pre-orders and the memoir.
