Slash expects new music from Guns N’ Roses to drop in 2021

A new album with Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators is also underway.

Slash has said that he’s hopeful the next Guns N’ Roses and Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators albums will release in 2021.

Speaking to Cleveland.com recently, The Cat in the Hat spoke about his upcoming projects with both bands, and admitted that while everything is still up in the air he’d “like to think” that the next albums from both bands will be out some time in 2021.

“We did a week of initial pre-production [on the Conspirators’ new album] and there’s 20 songs and we’re gonna start back up next year,” he said. “I spent a lot of time writing and demoing that stuff.”

“And prior to that, Duff 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: “I would like to think that we’d have some new stuff out next year – from both camps, I guess,” he said. “It’s hard to say, but I would like to think we’ll have stuff out next year.”

GNR’s next album, the follow-up to 2008’s notoriously delayed Chinese Democracy, has been highly-anticipated by fans, ever since Slash and bassist Duff McKagan rejoined the fold back in 2016. It would be the pair’s first studio album with GNR since 1993’s The Spaghetti Incident.

Meanwhile, Slash also shared that 20 songs have already been started for his fifth record with Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators.
