Lita Ford has teamed up with producer Gary Hoey and lyricist Michael Dan Ehmig to work on "Living Like A Runaway". Together the team invested a lot of time and effort into this kick ass project: "We worked on the lyrics intensively to really give the songs a lot of meaning and that special emotional depth. I think that these are some of the best lyrics ever, period." Ford is referring to numbers such as "Devil In My Head", "Hate", and "The Asylum" which see her bare her soul in a way which she has never done before.

Lita said on "Living Like A Runaway", "This CD is truly a dream come true. It took me one year to write this CD along with producer Gary Hoey and song writing partner Michael Dan Ehming. We have dumped out hearts and souls into this amazing CD - along with a lot of tears, pain, heartache, laughter, ripping out hair, going hungry, losing sleep and a lot of frequent flyer miles! "Living Like A Runaway" is like being able to walk through fire and coming out the other side unscathed."

Unlike many albums today, "Living Like A Runaway" is an album that truly must be heard in its entirety from start to finish. "Listeners shouldn't pick out individual tracks but listen to the full album," says Ford. "It's a fascinating musical journey, inspired by Pink Floyd's "Dark Side Of The Moon". I had seen a documentary about "Dark Side Of The Moon" and it really motivated me to focus on "Living Like A Runaway" as a whole journey rather just an individual song."

Following the demise of the Runaways, Lita Ford concentrated on her own career and now looks back on many memorable hits including the chart topping duet with Ozzy Osbourne "Close Your Eyes Forever", "What Do You Know About Love", "Shot Of Poison", "Larger Than Life" and "Kiss Me Deadly". With the release of 'Living Like A Runaway', expect many more songs to be added to the list of hits.
