Slash launches World On Fire

Slash has released a stream of his third solo album's title track, World On Fire.

He’s described the follow-up to 2012’s Apocalyptic Love as “effortless” to write, adding: “It happens very rarely – there’s a certain energy that carries the creative process, and it’s almost like you just ride that wave.”

The album will be released as a Classic Rock Fanpack on September 15 – a full four weeks ahead of its regular release date. The pack includes a metal pin badge, 116-page magazine including exclusive interviews and track-by-track breakdown. Those who pre-order before August 11 will also receive a personalised giant poster.
