In a recent interview with Planet Rock, legendary guitarist Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N’ ROSES revealed that his new solo album will be released next spring.
Another record has been mooted for some time but this is the first time that Slash has talked about the schedule for its release.
Although ALTER BRIDGE vocalist Myles Kennedy sang just two tracks on Slash‘s self-titled solo debut, Slash recently confirmed that Myles will sing everything on the guitarist’s next solo effort.
Speaking to Nicky Horne, he revealed, “Myles and I have been writing all throughout the tour so we’ve got a lot of material, and at this point we’re probably gonna start a little bit of pre-production in June and then do the tour in July. In September we’re going to [do more] pre-production and the album is slated to come out in March or April.”
In a recent interview with The Pulse Of Radio, Kennedy said about the fact that Slash would like him to handle the lead vocals on the guitarist’s next CD, “It’s very flattering. I think there’s kind of a cool thing we got going. We really enjoy working with each other. I know they’re auditioning singers now for VELVET REVOLVER, so I don’t know if they find the right guy if that’ll affect things timing-wise. I’m not really sure. But the plan right now is that yeah, we’ll do a record together down the road.”
Slash‘s debut disc came out last year and featured a different singer on each track, including Chris Cornell, Ozzy Osbourne, M. Shadows and others.
