Guns N’ Roses release the new song ‘Perhaps’


Guns N’ Roses have officially released their brand new song, “Perhaps.” According to a press release (via Audacy), the song was “written and recorded by Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan this year,” and marks their “first collective new composition and recording together in 30 years since 1993’s The Spaghetti Incident?

The new track comes a month after speculation that new music was on the way, after the band teased the titles “Perhaps” and “The General” via Instagram Story. Shortly thereafter, GN’R  stage tech Tom Mayhue was overheard telling a group of people about the band’s upcoming plans. Mayhue said at the time: “I know that the band’s gonna start working on new music, they’ve got a bunch of stuff recorded already. So there will be new Guns N’ Roses music very soon. In fact, I think they’re trying to get a single out any day now, so you may hear something very, very soon.”

“Perhaps” was officially released to rock radio on Aug. 17, but as of press time is not yet available on streaming services.
