‘Fill My World’ follows ‘The River Is Rising’ which is now the fastest rising radio debut of Slash’s career, cracking the top 20 at Rock Radio in the US at number 15 and climbing.
Slash described ‘Fill My World’ as having a “certain sentimental kind of feel to it”.
“Musically, I came up with it at my studio. It was just the opening riff, and then the underlying chord changes started to come out in my mind,” he said.
“I wasn’t sure if I was going to pursue it or not, but I had to record it and make a demo.
“I sent it to Myles, and he came back with these heartfelt lyrics. I thought it was about the loss we’ve all been suffering during this dark period, and then he told me it was about his dog.”
“So, I have this little Shih Tzu named Mozart – he tries to act all tough, but he’s really not, and on one occasion we couldn’t get home, our flight was delayed and there was a really intense storm over our house,” Myles Kennedy said.
“We have one of those little camera systems to keep an eye on the dog when we can’t be there, and we saw him just freaking out – it was heartbreaking to watch.
“It terrified the little guy. So, the narrative of the song is inspired by what I imagined he might have been thinking as it all went down. And his plea to us to come home.”
A vibrant rock album fuelled by memorable guitar hooks and compelling melodies, big choruses and even bigger riffs, 4 builds on the legacy of Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators’ prior work.
For 4, Slash and the band traveled across the country in a bus together to Nashville and recorded the new album at the historic RCA Studio A with producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, John Prine, Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile), and recorded the tracks live in the studio including the guitars solos and vocals, a first for the group.
4 is Slash’s fifth solo album, and fourth with Slash and his bandmates Myles Kennedy (Vocals), Brent Fitz (Drums), Todd Kerns (Bass & Vocals) and Frank Sidoris (Guitar & Vocals).
