Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash is back with his new solo album titled ‘4’. This release is his fifth solo album and fourth with Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators. This year marks ten years since the band’s debut ‘Apocalyptic Love’. The new album will mark the first-ever release on the new Gibson Records label and is out on February 11th 2022. The band got to lay down the tracks live for this album, a first for the band and Slash. Recording live the way they did, was something Slash had always wanted to do, and producer Dave Cobb finally made this a reality at the famous RCA Studio A in Nashville, Tennessee. These factors add to the anticipation and excitement of ‘4’, a pivotal album for the band and the label.

Legendary Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash has kept busy with his solo group. His latest project is his fifth solo album and fourth with Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, hence the album name ‘4’. The album is out on February 11th 2022 via Gibson Records in partnership with BMG. The new album ‘4’ will be the first-ever album released on the new Gibson Records label, headquartered in the iconic American instrument brand Gibson’s hometown of Music City, Nashville. Considering the long partnership between Gibson and Slash, with Slash named the first global ambassador for the brand, it makes perfect sense that ‘4’ would be the first Gibson Records release.
