Slash anticipates new Guns N’ Roses music in 2021, he’s optimistic that 2021 will see new releases from both Guns N’ Roses and his band with Myles Kennedy.
Captured at Tennessee’s Exit 111 festival in 2019, the professionally shot footage has been released as part of the band’s ongoing video series exhibiting handpicked performances from their 2016-2019 ‘Not In This Lifetime Tour’.
Entitled Not In This Lifetime Selects: Exit 111, the video also sees the band perform ‘Live And Let Die’, ‘Shadow Of Your Love’, ‘Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door’ and ‘Paradise City’.
The guitarist said he’s recently been working with bassist Duff McKagan on material expected to form the first new Guns N’ Roses album since 2008’s notoriously delayed ‘Chinese Democracy’.
A follow-up to 2018’s ‘Living The Dream’, which would be the guitarist’s fifth solo album and fourth billed as ‘Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators’, could also be on the cards, with 20 songs reportedly lined up for the project.
“We did a week of initial pre-production [on the new Conspirators album]and there’s 20 songs and we’re gonna start back up next year,” Slash told Cleveland.com.
“I spent a lot of time writing and demoing that stuff. And prior to that, Duff [McKagan] 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.”
He added: “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.”
