The cult rocker says 'Alice' and 'Red Drum' will be very different from each other...

TOM WAITS is set to release two albums simultaneously in the UK.

The reclusive vocalist will release ‘Alice’ and ‘Red Drum’, both on April 9 via Epitaph Records.

The records are said to be starkly different from each other, with the songs on ‘Red Drum’ being inspired by the Georg Buchner play ‘Woyzeck’.
