Slash records with Wolfmother’s Andrew Stockdale

Singer says he's 'honoured' to help the guitarist out

Slash has recorded a currently-untitled song with Wolfmother frontman Andrew Stockdale for his forthcoming solo album.

The Velvet Revolver and ex-Guns N’ Roses guitarist’s album is set to be called ‘Slash & Friends’ and is reportedly due for release in early 2010, with Stockdale contributing a vocal part.

“At the start of the year Slash contacted my manager and asked if I was interested in singing on his record,” the Wolfmother man told BBC Newsbeat.

He added: “Maybe because I’ve got that old-school delivery it matches what he was trying to do. He [Slash] is an iconic figure in rock’n’roll history. I thought, ‘It’s an honour’.”

Stockdale joins a long list of guest stars set to feature on the album, including Dave Grohl, Iggy Pop, Nick Oliveri, Ronnie Wood, Flea, Jason Bonham, Fergie, Duff McKagan and Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine.

Eric Valentine (Queens Of The Stone Age, Lostprophets) is on production duties.
