Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators streaming new song “Driving Rain”

Posted by on July 25, 2018

Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators new album Living the Dream is scheduled to arrive on September 21st via Slash’s own label Snakepit Records, in partnership with Roadrunner Records. Today (25th), the group has released the first single taken from the album with the song “Driving Rain.”

Slash commented on the track:

“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 through, 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.”

Myles Kennedy added:

“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.”
