Guns N’ Roses have shared their first new song since the release of their last album Chinese Democracy in 2008. It’s called “ABSUЯD” and it’s a rework of an unreleased song recorded for the Chinese Democracy sessions called “Silkworms.” Listen to it below.
The credits note that the song was co-produced by Axl Rose and Caram Costanzo, who previously co-produced Chinese Democracy together. It also features former Guns N’ Roses drummer Brain, but it is otherwise unclear which members of Guns N’ Roses appear on the single. Axl Rose has been touring with Slash and Duff McKagan in the past few years, a “classic lineup” reunion that began in 2016. They group is set to continue touring this year.
