Slash reveals that he is currently working on his second solo album, which features an appearance by Demi Lovato
Slash, the renowned guitarist of GUNS N’ ROSES, has exciting news to share with Yahoo! Entertainment. He is currently working on his second “solo” album, which serves as a follow-up to his 2010 record, “Slash.” This new album promises to showcase a diverse array of vocalists, much like his first solo endeavor, featuring the likes of Fergie, Adam Levine, Ozzy Osbourne, Dave Grohl, Lemmy Kilmister, Chris Cornell, Nicole Scherzinger, and others. However, Slash adds that this upcoming project will have a more pronounced blues orientation.
The 57-year-old axeman reveals that the album is slated for a definite release in 2024 and will feature a special guest appearance by the pop superstar Demi Lovato.
“There’s not really much more to tell you at this point, but [Lovato and I] definitely recorded something,” he said.
In addition to their collaboration for Slash‘s next solo album, the GN’R guitarist guested on Lovato‘s rock version of her 2017 song “Sorry Not Sorry”, which will appear on her “Revamped” LP, due out in September.
“I told her, Hey, if you ever need me to put some guitar on something, just let me know and I’ll do it,” he said. “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. [GUNS N’ ROSES] 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 added that the two tracks sound “completely different” from each other. “So it’s interesting how diverse her voice can be,” he said.
While this marks his second album under the “Slash” banner, it’s important to note that he has also released several albums with his long-standing band, SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS, where he collaborates with the talented ALTER BRIDGE frontman, Myles Kennedy.
In recent discussions with NME, Slash disclosed his touring plans for the coming months. After completing the GUNS N’ ROSES tour in October, he will be back on the road in January, touring with his other band, THE CONSPIRATORS, featuring Myles Kennedy. It seems fans have a lot to look forward to as Slash continues to make his mark in the world of rock music.
