Axl Rose has claimed that a new Guns N' Roses album is already recorded.

The band released their last album, 'The Chinese Democracy', in 2008 - a full 15 years after they released covers album 'The Spaghetti Incident?' in 1993. However, fans expecting a similar wait may be in for a surprise, with the band's frontman claiming that a new album has been finished and there is also a remix album in the works.

Speaking to Revolver, the frontman says: "We recorded a lot of things before Chinese was out. We've worked more on some of those things and we’ve written a few new things. But basically, we have what I call kind of the second half of 'Chinese.'

He adds: "That's already recorded. And then we have a remix album made of the songs from Chinese. That's been done for a while, too.”

Earlier this month year it was denied that Axl Rose is retiring from music, despite the fact the band are currently in residency at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas until July. Later in the interview, Rose says that "after Vegas, we're going to start looking very seriously at what we’re doing in that regard".

Guitarist Richard Fortus and DJ Ashba told reporters in 2013 that the band were planning for a new album to be out within a year.

Meanwhile, Guns N' Roses next confirmed release will be a 3D concert film entitled Appetite For Democracy 3D: Live from the Hard Rock Casino - Las Vegas. The movie will be released on July 1 via Blu-ray and DVD. It was filmed on November 21, 2012.
