Slash Announces Release Date for ‘Much More Cohesive’ Second Solo Album

A year ago, Slash was in Texas rocking out with pop stars the Black Eyed Peas and Usher as part of the Super Bowl XLV halftime show.

This past weekend, he was a good 2,000-plus miles away from Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis — and for good reason. The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist was in Los Angeles wrapping up his second solo studio album, which is slated for a May 22 release on Slash’s own Dik Hayd International imprint.

Just like on 2010′s ‘Slash,’ singer Myles Kennedy handles vocal chores on the still-untitled album. But this time around, Kennedy had a hand in co-writing all of the songs with Slash.

“He is just very musical as far as his melodic style is concerned, and he’s also very lyrical and just a really powerful singer,” Slash explains. “There’s a lot of positives about the way he sings.”

Slash also has high praise for bassist Todd Kerns and drummer Brent Fitz, saying the rhythm section “brings something to the table and changes the dynamic completely from the last record — it’s much more cohesive.”

As for touring behind the album (which will be distributed by EMI), no dates have been announced yet, but Slash and band are targeting Europe, Asia and Australia, among other parts of the world.
