It’s an incredibly busy time for Duff McKagan right now: as well as gearing up for a couple of massive UK shows with Guns N’ Roses this month, the rock legend has also announced his third solo album.

Duff is set to release Lighthouse – the follow-up to 2019’s Tenderness – on October 20, with the title-track available to hear now. And as well as being the next step in his singer-songwriter work, the album also features guest contributions from some of his famous pals: GN’R bandmate Slash, Alice In Chains’ Jerry Cantrell, and Iggy Pop.

“The crashing… the cresting waves, the falling through of all that surrounds you,” says Duff in a very lovely note about the album. “Life sometimes tosses us around, and we feel the want of comfort and the pull of home. A ship tossed like a toy through the Cape, sails ripped and the wood groaning with the scraping of its ballast… a soul trying with all its might to find peace and a center. Find a lighthouse. I have my lighthouse… its beacon swirling in the darkness with her warmth and promise of nurture, love, laughter, and all that is true. Won’t you be my lighthouse, give me light… and bring me home.”
