Slash Is Working On ‘Blues-Oriented’ Solo Album With ‘A Bunch Of Different Singers’
Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash was recently interviewed by Yahoo! Entertainment and said he’s working on his second “solo” album. You can expect the follow-up to 2010’s “Slash” to have “a bunch of different singers” and be “sort of similar to my first solo record, which featured Fergie, Adam Levine, Ozzy Osbourne, Dave Grohl, Lemmy Kilmister, Chris Cornell, Nicole Scherzinger and other vocalists, but ‘more blues-oriented’.”
Slash says the new solo will be released next year and includes a guest appearance by pop superstar Demi Lovato, “There’s not really much more to tell you at this point, but [Lovato and I] definitely recorded something.”
In what looks to be a scratch-my-back-I’ll-scratch-yours, Slash guested on Lovato’s rock version of her ’17 song “Sorry Not Sorry”, which is on her “Revamped” LP, due out this September.
Slash says, “I told her, Hey, if you ever need me to put some guitar on something, just let me know and I’ll do it. And so she hit me back about two weeks, three weeks later, and said she’s got this song that she’s doing a remake of and asked if I’d put some guitar on that. [Gn’R] did a show in Norway and I had a day off, so I found a cool engineer and studio in Norway and just put the guitars on there. It’s amazing how fast it came out.”
Slash said the two tracks sound “completely different” from each other. “So it’s interesting how diverse her voice can be.”
Slash has been touring with Guns N’ Roses and said he’ll resume touring with Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators (Brent Fitz (drums),Todd Kerns (bass, vocals) and Frank Sidoris (guitar, vocals)) next year. Will a new album follow? Their last, “4”, was released in February 2022.
Loved that first solo album by Slash. So many great appearances, so many great songs! Who do you hope Slash gets to sing on his new solo album?
