Duff McKagan, bassist of Guns N’ Roses is gearing up for a solo album.
He’s giving fans the first preview of the album with title track “Tenderness”.
The song takes a much softer stance than fans of GnR might be used to, focusing on peace. Listen below:
“The real point of this record, and the lyrics for ‘Tenderness,’ is not for me to be some damn politician or some other voice to add to what is already way too much noise,” McKagan said in a press release.
The album follows How to Be a Man (and Other Illusions), released in 2015, and was created during breaks of the Guns N’ Roses reunion tour.
“The heartbreak, anger, fear, confusion and divide I have experienced over the last two and a half years of traveling this globe of ours coerced these words into songs that tell my truth, and one that I hope will spread and help us all. I do this for my daughters…I do this for my love of where I grew up…I do this, because I truly feel it must be done and said right now.”
Tenderness is slated for a 2019 release.
