Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) Premieres “Cold Outside” Music Video

Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) is celebrating “Giving Tuesday” by releasing a new video for “Cold Outside.” This track is from his latest solo album “Tenderness.” The clip focuses on the U.S. homeless crisis and it coincides with a Propeller campaign that was launched to benefit Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission. McKagan commented:

“In my early days, I was in similar situations, so I know what it’s like to not have anyone to turn to and sometimes need a helping hand to get back on my feet. I know many know others in need and I am hoping that, if we come together, we can help make a real difference.”

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

Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) has premiered a new song titled “Last September.” This track is from his new Shooter Jennings produced solo album, “Tenderness,” which will be released on May 31.

McKagan had the following to say about the song, which was inspired by #MeToo abuse survivors:

“I heard and read some awful stories. As the father of two girls, I felt the need to write this song. If I have any job in the world, it’s to protect the women in my life.”

“I wanted to make the man in the song as awful as possible. I wanted to make him a warning. We hear stories of people showing signs beforehand…and we hear also, that something could have been done. I don’t have an answer, and the song doesn’t either. The hope is to simply raise awareness of distressing signals that some may display.”

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.”
