Myles Kennedy (Slash, Alter Bridge) has finally completed recording his long-awaited solo album, although the CD’s release date, title and artwork have yet to be revealed. Kennedy first said he was working on the album in 2009!
The album was produced by Alter Bridge cohort Brian Sperber at Tiny Pocket Studio (Yorktown Heights, upstate New York) and features “a lot of friends.”
Unsurprisingly these include Slash, who plays guitar on at least one track. Slash has been a very vocal fan of his Conspirators bandmate, telling The Pulse of Radio of Kennedy: “You know, Myles is pretty interesting. I mean, he sings great, he’s a great lyricist, all he does is work, he loves to tour. He works constantly, but when he’s not working onstage, he’s working in his room, writing stuff and, you know, in the studio he’s always there. So he’s sort of odd!”
Kennedy recently told Music Radar his solo album is “probably a little more singer-songwriter oriented than what people have heard from me before. There’s piano on it, and it’s a little more intimate sounding.
“People who have heard it say it’s closer to my previous band back in the late ’90s, The Mayfield Four. It kinda has that vibe to it. It’s definitely different from both Slash and the Conspirators and Alter Bridge stuff.”
