Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators have confirmed that a new studio album is on the way
Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash has been working hard on a new solo album with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, and now, he and his team are ready to unleash it to the world. Slash has announced that his new album will arrive on Gibson Records via Gibson’s new, strategic label partnership with BMG.
“It’s an honor to be the first release on the new Gibson Records,” Slash said in a statement. “It’s a zenith in our partnership for sure and having worked so closely with Gibson for so long, I know they will be a label that genuinely supports their artists creatively. Not just me, but all the artists they choose to work with. It’s perfect.”
Gibson Records will collaborate with Gibson musicians to “produce, record, and promote their music to fans around the world, spreading the power of their music, creating, building, and delivering guitar-centric music, across genres to fans across the globe,” according to a statement.
“Partnering with Gibson Records and BMG presents an exciting and unique opportunity to explore new ideas for marketing and promoting a record,” Jeff Varner, co-founder of Revelation Management Group, which marks Slash’s longtime manager, said in a statement. “It shows a real commitment on the part of Gibson towards the artist community, and it will serve as a model for future artist releases. Working with Cesar and the Gibson team has provided a fresh approach to how we can support an album release.”
“BMG congratulates Gibson on the launch of their new label and is proud to collaborate with Gibson Records on its inaugural album release,” Thomas Scherer, president, BMG repertoire and marketing, New York and Los Angeles, said.
Scherer added, “This is the perfect match between two global brands with an unrivaled reverence for iconic artists and respect to service their creative talents. We are excited to be the worldwide partner for Slash’s new album with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators and look forward to delivering their new music to fans everywhere around the world.”
