Below is a video preview for Slash's upcoming solo album.
Slash will be released in the US on April 6th via EMI and in Canada on the same day by Universal. In the UK, Slash will be released on May 10th through Roadrunner Records. The album will be released on March 31st in Japan via Universal with an exclusive bonus DVD.
A major undertaking for Slash, he enlisted services of producing partner Eric Valentine (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS) and compiled a rhythm section of bassist Chris Chaney (JANE'S ADDICTION) and drummer Josh Freese (NINE INCH NAILS). Slash handled the majority of arranging and songwriting duties and hand-picked each guest artist. The album's guests worked collaboratively with Slash to round out the song.
"The idea was really simple in the beginning," said Slash. "These are all artists I wanted to work with – that I thought it would be amazing to do something creative and collaborative. And I was so impressed with what everyone brought to the table. They were all so committed to doing a good job. And we had a lot of fun making these songs."
