Guns N' Roses' bassist Duff McKagan plans to release a solo album next year.

The LP is being produced by Shooter Jennings and is a "musical follow-up" to McKagan's 2015 book How to Be a Man (and Other Illusions). McKagan began working on the album in March 2018 at Los Angeles' Station House studios. His last solo album Believe In Me was released in 1993.

McKagan has not set a release date for his upcoming solo album, but said that he's putting "finishing touches" on the LP. The album is said to be inspired in part by the bassist's journeys while touring with the reunited Guns N' Roses, according to Rolling Stone.

"I wrote a couple of articles about historical places I passed through on this last tour and people kept asking if that was going to be the focus of my next book," says McKagan. "But an unseen and irrepressible force guided me to write little vignettes of reflective prose…little instant-reactions."

McKagan continued, "The heartbreak, anger, fear, confusion and divide I have experienced over the last two and a half years of traveling this globe of ours coerced these words into songs that tell my truth, and one that I hope will spread and help us all. I do this for my daughters…I do this for my love of where I grew up…I do this, because I truly feel it must be done and said right now."
