Impatient to hear Slash's upcoming album, 'Apocalyptic Love'? You're going to have to wait until late May for the whole experience, but the former Guns N' Roses guitar god has been kind enough to share a clip from the record to tide us over in the meantime.
The song preview, taken from the album track 'You're a Lie,' is being offered through the Australian hard rock station Triple M, and it showcases Slash's work with Alter Bridge vocalist Myles Kennedy, who co-wrote the album with him. For the new sessions, Slash reunited with producer Eric Valentine, who also helped man the boards for 2010′s 'Slash' album.
'Slash' was an unqualified success, debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart and featuring Slash working alongside an eclectic crew of special guests that included Ozzy Osbourne, Lemmy, Iggy Pop, Kid Rock, Adam Levine, and Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas. This time out, Slash opted for a more cohesive approach, recording with a basic combo that included Kennedy on vocals, Todd Kerns on bass, and Brent Fitz on drums.
Scheduled for a May 22 release through Slash's own Dik Hayd International imprint, 'Apocalyptic Love' will also be available in a special 'Classic Rock Fan Pack' edition, curated by Classic Rock Magazine, which will bundle bonus tracks, a pin badge, and a poster in with the standard track listing.
