Slash on How His Song ‘Fill My World’ Was Written and Sharing A Video on YouTube
The talented guitarist Slash has recently shared a video, as he talked about one of his songs from his upcoming album with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators.
After releasing the official music video for their LP’s first single, The River Is Rising, in October, Slash and Myles Kennedy, and The Conspirators have been preparing to release their upcoming album, titled 4, without stop. As the talented guitarist and his side project have been promoting their album, to be released on February 11, ‘4’ will be the 4th album featuring Slash, Myles Kennedy, Brent Fitz, Todd Kerns, and Frank Sidoris, all together. The upcoming album will also be Slash’s fifth solo album, among his other works, as well.
And recently, the regarded musician shared a short video, explaining to fans how one of the upcoming album’s songs, Fill My World, was written.
“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. I wasn’t sure if I was going to pursue it or not, but I had to record it and make a demo. I thought I don’t know what the guys are going to think… Because it has a certain sentimental kind of feel to it. But 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. I said, ‘Well, you know, everybody has had somebody that they love affected by this, so…'” said Slash, as he was followed right after by the vocalist Myles Kennedy’s statement.
“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. 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. When you listen to it, it could apply to a relationship between humans. But I thought it was interesting, at least for me, to sing it from Mozart’s perspective. And to be really honest, as I was singing the song in the studio, at one point you can hear my voice crack a little bit. It was getting to me. So, it’s definitely sung from the heart. And I’m man enough to admit it.”
Slash’s new album with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators, 4, has written its name to the music history as the first-ever album to be released on the new Gibson Records label. And eventually, the upcoming North American tour of Slash, Myles Kennedy, and The Conspirators will give its start on February 8, in Portland, Oregon, as they will be wandering 28 major cities, including Los Angeles, New York, Boston, and more, wrapping up in Orlando, Florida, on March 26.
Ultimately, Slash also appeared on a new interview recently, talking about his new album, his relationship with Axl Rose, along with many other things, including their reunion tour with Guns N’ Roses. You may find out more about what the talented musician told, here.
