slash dropped Remind the dogs, the third single from his forthcoming fourth album with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, 4.
Continuation of previously released singles The river rises and fill my world, Remind the dogs sees the Guns N’ Roses man serve up an abundance of crisp classic rock-inspired riffs behind Myles Kennedy’s anthemic vocals, before letting loose with a searing solo filled with typically Slash bands and fast alternate pick lines at 1 :50 mark. Check it out below.
Scheduled to be the very first album to be released via Gibson Records, 4 is Slash’s fifth solo album. His self-titled debut album arrived in 2010, with a host of guest vocalists including Ozzy Osbourne, Chris Cornell, M. Shadows and many more.
While recording the album, Slash and Kennedy – along with two other band members – tested positive for Covid-19.
Calling it “the funniest story” about the record-making process, Slash recently told Germany Regenbogen Radio: “We took a tourist bus to Nashville to protect ourselves – to get [to the recording studio] and not travel commercially.
“And then we went to record the whole record, and then I got a phone call from Myles in the studio when I was about to do some overdubs, and he said, ‘Man, I tested positive. .
“Afterwards, two of the other guys tested positive, so they all had to go into quarantine. And we still had to do percussion and background vocals, and so we kind of stalled.
Despite the logistical problems, Kennedy revealed last year that the majority of the album was recorded “in about five days”.
“The guys settled in almost like they were playing a show,” Kennedy said. Merger on Detroit’s WRIF radio station. “They were all in the same room together and rocking live. And I was in a vocal booth. So a lot of what you hear on those tracks is just five guys playing at the same time.
“A lot of times with modern recordings you start and you get the drums, you get the bass and you get the guitars, and it was just really fast… I think the majority of the album was recorded in about five days .
” This is unheard of. I can’t remember the last time we made a record where the majority was done so quickly.
Elsewhere, Slash recently confirmed that a new Guns N’ Roses album is well and truly on the way.
“There is new Guns material coming out right now,” he said in a recent interview with classic rock, “and we’ll probably keep releasing it until the whole record is done, and then release it solidly.”
“That’s cool,” he added. “I like to work on things and have a good time doing them.”
