DUFF MCKAGAN ANNOUNCES 2019 SOLO ALBUM WITH PRODUCER SHOOTER JENNINGS

New York Times bestselling author and Guns N’ Roses bassist DUFF McKAGAN
is putting the finishing touches on a solo album that’s coming in 2019.
McKagan began recording the album back in March with producer Shooter Jennings. The two worked
out of Station House studios, located in Echo Park, CA, writing and recording in-between McKagan’s tour
with seminal rock band Guns N’ Roses and the release of Jennings’ eponymous album, Shooter.
The album will be McKagan’s musical follow-up to 2015’s bestselling book, How To Be A Man (And Other
Illusions).
“I wrote a couple of articles about historical places I passed through on this last tour and people kept
asking if that was going to be the focus of my next book,” says McKagan. “But an unseen and
irrepressible force guided me to write little vignettes of reflective prose…little instant-reactions.
The heartbreak, anger, fear, confusion and divide I have experienced over the last two and a half years
of traveling this globe of ours coerced these words into songs that tell my truth, and one that I hope will
spread and help us all. I do this for my daughters…I do this for my love of where I grew up…I do this,
because I truly feel it must be done and said right now.”
“From the first night we sat together at my piano hashing out arrangements of his songs, before going
into the studio to record them, I felt it was a really important record that had to be heard,” says
Jennings. “The songs have so much heart and are so musical that I could just hear all the arrangements
immediately and I could really feel them.”
About his connection to McKagan, Jennings says, “I met Duff right after I moved to Los Angeles nearly
twenty years ago. I was such a massive Guns N' Roses fan when I was younger. I'd say that they had a lot
to do with me even moving to LA. But there was some kind of magnetic force I guess that kept us
orbiting each other over the years. When the idea of collaborating with him on this album came up, I
was very eager to get the job as producer. I felt like the music this man made was part of the fabric of
my own musical identity and that I would really love building a record with him. Once we sat down and
started going over the songs he had, I instantly knew that the two of us were going to be a great fit
together.”



SHOOTER JENNINGS RELEASES “D.R.U.N.K.” & “HEY SHOOTER! EP. 5”

Shooter Jennings and Elektra Records proudly release the latest single from the upcoming album “Shooter”, and another installment of the “Hey Shooter!” video series that’s joined each of the album’s songs ahead of the August 10th release date.

Shooter spoke with Billboard’s Chuck Dauphin on the tune’s creation, and the Hank Jr. influence on the record.

“One thing about the record that I particularly wanted was to have a good drinking song, so I got in text contact with him (Aaron Ratiere), and told him what I was trying to do with this record. I went up to meet him and he said ‘I’ve got this line – I’m gonna tell you what I’m gonna do with my whole day – I’m gonna get D.R.U.N.K.”

SHOOTER JENNINGS RELEASES “DENIM & DIAMONDS” and a BRAND NEW “HEY SHOOTER!”

Shooter Jennings has released his new song, “Denim & Diamonds.” A song whose sound gives the listener the sense that it’s been a classic for decades, “Denim & Diamonds” is a dark and smoky acoustic guitar and bass-driven paean to the late 80s/early 90s line dancing culture that thrived in dive clubs across the country and the people in his life who lived to go out and simply dance the night away. It was a scene he judged harshly while growing up, yet now looks back on with fondness as he reflects upon the carefree days of youth, wondering where the people who partied in these clubs are today.

It’s the third single from Jennings’ new album, SHOOTER, which arrives at all music retailers and streaming services via Low Country Sound and Elektra Records on Friday, August 10. The album was produced by longtime friend and collaborator, Low Country Sound founder Dave Cobb, at the renowned RCA Studio A on Nashville’s Music Row. PRE-ORDER HERE NOW!

“Randy and I had been corresponding for a while,” Jennings says of the song’s genesis. “I was trying to get him and his wife on my radio show, but nothing ever came of it. Then I asked him about one of the YouTube videos they made of him reading out of the Bible, I wanted to play it on the Christmas episode. He wrote back, saying I’d fulfilled this lifelong dream of his to read the Gospel on the radio, and he signed it, ‘Here’s to fast horses and good hideouts.’ I thought, that would make a great song! So then I went and wrote it.”
