Bassist Duff McKagan told Billboard: “RCA did a bunch of research on what they first single should be. I’m pretty anti that stuff. The band had something they wanted to go with, but RCA just kept coming with it. So we decided, it’s fine. It’s a great fucking rock song. It has a kick ass guitar riff, great chorus, a really big bridge and a great Slash solo.”

Tracks also slated to appear on the album include ’Last Fight’ and ’She’s Mine’.

The band are set to play Download 2007, which takes place at Donnington Park on June 8-10.
