Slash Hopes Guns N’ Roses Will Release New Music in 2021
In a new interview with Cleveland.com, Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash says he’s hoping the band will finally release new music in 2021.
He also revealed that he’s been working on new music for his semi-solo project, Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators:
“[The Conspirators] did a week of initial pre-production, and there’s 20 songs and we’re gonna start back up next year. I spent a lot of time writing and demoing that stuff. And prior to that, Duff [McKagan, GN’R bassist] and I did some jamming and we also worked on the Guns record, and I’ve had a couple of ancillary recordings and jams on top of that, so there’s been a lot of stuff going on. I’m really not good at slowing down and just sitting around.”
The guitarist continued:
“I would like to think that we’d have some new stuff out next year — from both camps, I guess. It’s hard to say, but I would like to think we’ll have stuff out next year, yeah.”
Guns N’ Roses’ last album, Chinese Democracy, was released in 2008… although their last album to feature founding members Axl Rose, Slash, and McKagan remains the 1993 covers record, “The Spaghetti Incident?”. That iteration of the band hasn’t released new music since the Use Your Illusion albums in 1991. Slash has said before that the band spent the quarantine working on new music.
Guns N’ Roses are allegedly going to tour North America in the summer of 2021. Dates are here.
Meanwhile, Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators’ most recent album, Living the Dream, was released in 2018.
