Slash has dropped a new single with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, titled “The River Is Rising,” from his upcoming album, 4.
“The River Is Rising” marks the first collaboration between Slash and Kennedy and the Conspirators since their 2018 album Living the Dream.
4 is set to release on February 11, via Gibson Records in partnership with BMG. 4 is Slash’s fifth solo album and fourth overall with his band featuring Kennedy, Brent Fitz, Todd Kerns and Frank Sidoris.
Slash had teased the song on social media with a 30-second trailer in which he discussed the song’s recording process.
“This was the first time that we actually did all the guitars, bass and drums live at the same time and kept all those tracks, and we also did the vocals live as well,” Slash said in the video. “So the record just sounds like the band playing the songs that we came in with, but it’s us playing in the moment, and that’s what we were going for.”
Kennedy added, “This one’s pretty much a live record, from my standpoint. You’re just trying to kind of document where you are at that point in life and do it in an authentic way.”
