The song features on the Guns N’ Roses (opens in new tab) bassist’s album Tenderness (opens in new tab), with the footage capture at his recent sold-out show at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles.

Speaking about the track with Classic Rock, McKagan said: “We knew Tenderness would be the first song on the record, and when I wrote Don't Look Behind You, Shooter Jennings said, ‘That has to be the last song on the record. We have it: the beginning and the end.' 

"It's the most hopeful song on the record. If you notice, I use some other titles from the record, and it kind of sums up the record, with the last stop being, 'You know what? We're gonna get through this together.' 

"Just don't look behind you, don't dwell on the past. Just look forward, and we're gonna be okay."

The video comes as McKagan, Jennings, John Schreffler, Jamie Douglass and Aubrey Richmond prepare to embark on their European tour, which will get under way in Warsaw on August 22.
