Oh please, let no one jinx this. Slash has high hopes for the coming year, since the musician hopes to release new music with both Guns N’ Roses and his band with Myles Kennedy.

In a new interview with, Slash gave us updates on the upcoming Guns N’ Roses album, saying that he’s been at it with Duff McKagan (bassist). In an interview earlier this year, he clarified he’d been using time in the quarantine to focus on new music for Guns N’ Roses.

In addition to this, work is also underway on a new LP from Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. According to him, there are already a whopping 20 songs ready to be featured.

Slash told that he would ‘like to think that we’d have some new stuff out next year — from both camps.’

He also provided details on the album with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators: “We did a week of initial pre-production and there’s 20 songs and we’re gonna start back up next year.”

“I spent a lot of time writing and demoing that stuff. And prior to that, Duff [McKagan] and I did some jamming and we also worked on the Guns record, and I’ve had a couple of ancillary recordings and jams on top of that, so there’s been a lot of stuff going on. I’m really not good at slowing down and just sitting around.” he added.

Of course, with pandemic still raging around the world even after almost a year, possibilities of live performances are still up in the air. The guitarist, however, is hopeful for the coming summer, saying that they have dates ‘that are just sitting there.’

“I would like to think it’s enough time between now and then to be able to pull that off. It’s hard to say. You can’t know for sure until the light at the end of the tunnel really starts shining, so we’re just wishful thinking. We’ll see what happens.” he said.
