VIDEO: Axl Rose streams first new song in a decade

Axl Rose is streaming a video for his first new song in a decade, “Rock The Rock.”

The clip from a recent episode of the New Looney Tunes series sees the Guns N’ Roses singer taking on an incoming asteroid with music from a band that includes Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig on guitars.

The Boomerang network confirmed Rose’s involvement in the animated series with the video’s release, following weeks of speculation about the rocker’s participation.

While no details about the possible release of “Rock The Rock” have been confirmed to date, the tune marks Rose’s first new song since Guns N’ Roses issued their sixth album, “Chinese Democracy”, in 2008.

Following the completion of the Not In This Lifetime reunion tour last month, GNR guitarist Richard Fortus revealed that new music from the band could surface within the next year.

“We are going to try to do another record and get it out soon,” Fortus told KSHE 95 St. Louis, MO, suggesting that new material "will happen faster than you think," with a new song possibly issued before the end of 2019…“It could definitely happen.”

Guns N’ Roses were named the No. 7 Rock News Artist Of The Year as part of the 2018 hennemusic Rock News Awards.
