It has been eight years since Alaska Thunderfuck first appeared on Rupauls Drag Race.
Since her first appearance and her consecutive victory over All-Stars 2, she has become one of the most successful stars in the series.
As 2021 draws to a close, the unstoppable star has made a slew of new announcements.
With three albums, several singles and tours to his credit, his latest announcement is another feather in his Drag stroke cap.
New Music, Tour and Book for Alaska Thunderfuck
After appearing on Drag race Alaska Thunderfuck has become a brand known around the world.
Tongue in cheek, catchy comedy tunes have become his flagship product.
From his first album Anus iconic Four quarters Alaska Thunderfuck makes his fans sit, listen and laugh.
Not content with sitting back and watching the world go by, Alaska is ready to face 2022 with flying colors.
In preparation, she released the first single, Red, taken from his next album. Red for dirt.
Just as Poundcake in 2016 referred to its appearance in season five, so does the title of that album.
In season five Red for dirt was the name of the Alaska fragrance created for the market in episode eight.
At first listen it’s a change for Alaska.
While , Anus, Four quarters and Vagina were more of a self-referential comedy, Red is a celebration of music.
“Red is the color of blood, and of the heart, and the color of love.” She says of her new single and album.
“This song and album are dedicated to when I first fell in love with music at the turn of the century. We draw on the sounds and textures of the 90s and early 2000s, with pop songs that are about love and friendship. I love music and can’t wait to share it with all of you.
My name is yours, what Alaska?: A Memory
Not content with filling our brains with music, Alaska Thunderfuck also released a book.
We all knew she could read, but my daughter, we didn’t know she could write too.
My name is yours, what is Alaska? : A thesis is the title, of course.
In typical Alaskan fashion, we can expect to laugh out loud while sipping an exceptional amount of spilled tea.
His memories will relate his childhood until his rise to fame. And of course its time on Drag race.
Does she intend to tell you everything? Of course she does.
“People have often asked me. ‘Alaska– if you ever had to write a book, what would you talk about? The answer is simple. It would be about me, of course.
“In this book, I intend to say the T, the entire T, and nothing but the T – so help me Goddess.”
“By telling the story of my life, from my birth until now, I hope to invite you into my world, set the record straight and inspire the children of the world. Because if a poor skinny queer boy from Erie, PA can grow up to be an alien starlet on stage and on screen, then really the anus-thing is possible.
On top of that, Alaska will drop its first North American tour, which for Australians is sadly out of reach.
But fear not! You can check out the latest Alaskan single below, on Youtube, Spotify and Itunes.
My name is yours, what is Alaska? : A thesis will be available for purchase later this year.
Red for dirt should be released in early 2022.
