Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) Premieres New Song “Tenderness”

Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) has premiered a new song titled “Tenderness.” This is the first single from his upcoming Shooter Jennings produced solo album.

McKagan commented:

“The real point of this record, and the lyrics for ‘Tenderness’, is not for me to be some damn politician or some other voice to add to what is already way too much noise. This is a song of unity and peace… and I want this record to be a meditation and to bring maybe some healing, if that is not too high-handed or lofty of a goal. I can use what marginal voice I have as an artist, to hopefully help arrest what seems like a fall. As a father, I must say and do something now… because I love my girls and my wife, and I love my country, and I feel I must be strong and use my voice now, do it while I am able, or perhaps never get a chance ever again.”

Jennings added.

“From the start of the development of this record, ‘Tenderness’ stood out as a focal point. I was almost scared to cut it too early — before we had really mined the sound of the album. I knew we had one shot to do it right with feeling. After it was done and we had a first mix, I wrote Duff and said, ‘This song has to come out right now!’ It has a simple message of celebrating life and each other and for everyone to take it easy on one another. It offered an empathetic solution for a divisive time in the world: Tenderness.”
