Duff McKagan Releases New Track from Upcoming Album
Duff McKagan has released a new track from his upcoming solo album, Tenderness, which comes out May 31st. “Last September” is an ode to the abuse survivors in the #MeToo movement.
“I heard and read some awful stories. As the father of two girls, I felt the need to write this song” McKagan shared. “If I have any job in the world, it’s to protect the women in my life. I wanted to make the man in the song as awful as possible. I wanted to make him a warning. We hear stories of people showing signs beforehand…and we hear also, that something could have been done. I don’t have an answer, and the song doesn’t either. The hope is to simply raise awareness of distressing signals that some may display.”
Tenderness marks McKagan’s third solo album and reflects on his past few years on the Guns N’ Roses “Not In This Lifetime” tour. It’s produced by Shooter Jennings and will come in CD, digital download, and a special limited edition vinyl with book. Jennings will join the bassist on tour in support of the album.
