Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan announces solo album with Iggy Pop, Slash, Jerry Cantrell and more
The 11-track LP features a handful of star-studded collaborations including Iggy Pop, his Guns N’ Roses bandmate Slash, and Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell. McKagan’s feature with Iggy Pop marks a full-circle moment as he made an appearance on Pop’s album, as well as being a member of his live band while on tour.
Discussing the album and its central theme, McKagan said: “The crashing…. the cresting waves, the falling through of all that surrounds you. Life sometimes tosses us around, and we feel the want of comfort and the pull of home. A ship tossed like a toy through the Cape, sails ripped and the wood groaning with the scraping of its ballast…. a soul trying with all its might to find peace and a center.”
He continued: “Find a lighthouse. I have my lighthouse…. its beacon swirling in the darkness with her warmth and promise of nurture, love, laughter, and all that is true. Won’t you be my lighthouse, give me light,… and bring me home.”
‘Lighthouse’ is set for release on October 20. Check out the full tracklist below and visit here to pre-order the album.
