We can expect a couple new Guns N’ Roses tunes “in the next few months… or something like that,” according to Slash. 

According to UCR, The guitar legend appeared on Eddie Trunk’s Trunk Nation SiriusXM radio show on Wednesday, where he discussed GNR’s plans for touring and releasing new music, and his eagerness to record a new album with the band. 

"I want to go in and cut a whole brand new record at some point, probably sooner than later," he said. 

"But other than that, we have stuff [that's still] got to come out. So that's gonna be coming out piecemeal over the next… few months or something like that. So that's basically it. We have one more tour left to do next summer, and then that'll free us up to be able to go in and work on a new record."

Slash said the band have reworked several songs from their back catalogue during the pandemic, like they did with the two songs they released last year, “Absurd” and “Hard Skool’ - which both date back to the Chinese Democracy sessions. 

"There's a handful of those songs that we absolutely fixed up and did when we were in lockdown," he explained. 

"Those have yet to be released, so those are gonna come out. ... We're just gonna put out like one or two songs, and another one or two songs, and I think that's gonna be pretty much all of them. I'm not sure exactly how many we did in total."

He noted that the unreleased tracks “don't have the same kind of amount of history, 'cause I know 'Hard Skool'… goes way back. But there's a couple of epic ones coming out, so I'm excited about that."
