Duff McKagan has shared a new track called “Last September”. Antimusic reports that’s the latest preview to his forthcoming album, “Tenderness.” The rocker says the tune is a response to the stories spawned by the #MeToo movement.
McKagan explained: “Being the father of two girls, having a wife and having three older sisters. I don’t have much time for predators and male bullies.”
“Last September” is the fourth track to be released in advance of the album’s drop. The tune follows the lead single and title track, “Chip Away”, and “Don’t Look Behind You.”
McKagan says the song is an expression of hope: “This was a fictionalized story I wrote to kind of sum up that, and what I kinda came to – in a gentler moment of it – is like ‘his momma didn’t raise a man.’”
“And at the end of the song, there’s a refrain where the girl is going to be okay at the end of the day…and she’s going to have scrapes and scars but she’ll move on past this; there’s hope there.”
Set for release on May 31, McKagan recorded “Tenderness” with artist and producer Shooter Jennings. Shooter’s group will join the bassist for live dates in support of the project this year. They will kick with a three-week series of US dates that will begin in Philadelphia, PA on May 30.
Henne music reports that “Tenderness” will be available in multiple formats, including CD, digital and vinyl – with a limited-edition package on 180-gram yellow & red starburst vinyl that also adds the CD.
There’s also an exclusive lithograph signed and numbered by McKagan, and a deluxe hard-cover book presenting photos and liner notes from the recording sessions.
