Slash feat. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators have debuted a visualizer for their new single “Driving Rain”. Slash described the track’s creation, saying:
“This is a riff I specifically remember playing with the guys for the first time at a venue in New Hampshire on the World On Fire Tour. It’s a cool guitar part we ran though, and from that point forward the rest of the song started to come together in my mind while on the road. We put it all together this year and Myles came up with a great melody for it.”
Singer Myles Kennedy adds:
“The riff is very reminiscent of vintage Aerosmith. It’s got a certain funk to it that’s compelling. Lyrically, it’s a story about somebody who works on the road–it could be a musician, and it could be a traveling salesman. What makes it interesting is this guy has an addict girlfriend or spouse who continues to relapse, and she ends up getting him to come home. She’s miserable and falls back into bad old habits, and that compels him to head back to her to save the day.”
The song is the first single off their forthcoming effort Living The Dream. The album is scheduled to drop on September 21st through Slash’s label, Snakepit Records, in partnership with Roadrunner Records. Pre-orders are available now here.
