Guns N’ Roses have finally released the new song “Perhaps” on streaming services. Check it out below. The release follows much teasing, including a jukebox leak and a pre-emptive service to rock radio earlier this week. Though demoed in decades past, the song was “written and recorded by Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan this year” as their “first collective new composition and recording together in 30 years,” according to a press release reported by Audacy, which hosted the song on its radio stations yesterday.
Guns N’ Roses are currently touring North America. Their last singles, 2021’s “Hard Skool” and “Absurd,” followed a decade-long drought. Last year, the band reissued Use Your Illusion I and II.
