After recently teasing that their new album is "probably the best one we've done so far", Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators have confirmed that the record's first single is arriving this Friday!

The track goes by the name The River Is Rising, and in a new teaser video the guitar legend says of what's to come as a whole: "This was the first time that we actually did all the guitars, bass and drums live at the same time, and kept all those tracks. And we also did the vocals live as well.

"So the record just sounds like the band playing the songs that we came in with, but it’s us playing in the moment. And that’s what we were going for."

Read this: Slash: "Guns N’ Roses were a gang that walked into a room like, ‘You don’t want to fuck with us’”

Vocalist Myles adds in the video: "This one’s pretty much a live record, from my standpoint. You’re just trying to kind of document where you are at that point in life, and do it in an authentic way."

Stay tuned for more on the album – which will be released via Gibson – and come back on October 22 to hear The River Is Rising.
