Duff McKagan has shared a stream of his brand new single Chip Away.

It’s been taken from the Guns N’ Roses bassist’s upcoming solo album Tenderness, which today has been confirmed for a May 31 release. McKagan revealed the title track last month (opens in new tab).

The album was produced by Shooter Jennings who also features on the album, with McKagan saying: “Chip Away is somewhat of a rail against cable news and divisive agendas – all for the almighty dollar. 

“The song also highlights the fact that history repeats itself over and over, and that we will all get past this together.”

Tenderness will launch on CD, LP, on digital and streaming platforms, and as a limited edition package containing a 180g yellow and red starburst vinyl, CD and a lithograph signed and numbered by McKagan. 

It’ll also come with a 40-page hard cover book featuring photos from the studio sessions and liner notes written by the bassist.

McKagan, along with Jennings, John Schreffler, Jamie Douglass and Aubrey Richmond, will head out on tour across the US throughout May and June in support of the new album.
