Slash’s new studio album will be released on May 22.
In 2010, the former Guns ‘N Roses guitarist/hat-wearer released his first solo album, an exercise in rock ‘n roll excess featuring a menagerie of special guest vocalists including Fergie, Ozzy Osbourne, Ian Astbury of The Cult, Chris Cornell, Iggy Pop, M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold, and Kid Rock. In addition to that clustercuss, it also featured apperances by Dave Grohl and Slash’s ex-GN’R cohorts Izzy Stradlin, Steven Adler and Duff McKagan.
Well, the newly-announced follow-up won’t have any special guests. Rather, Slash recorded the record with only his touring band – vocalist/guitarist Myles Kennedy (who co-wrote much of the material), drummer Brent Fitz and bassist Todd Kerns.
The forthcoming colleciton doesn’t yet have an official title or track list, but rock fans can expect it to be released on May 22 via Slash’s own label, Dik Hayd International.
Below, watch an in-studio video chronicling the band’s work on the new record.
