Matt Sorum, famed for his work on the drum stool with Guns N’ Roses, The Cult and Velvet Revolver, has revealed that he is working on a new solo album.
“My new solo record will not be a rock record and I am not playing drums on it. [I am] singing and [playing] acoustic [guitar] mainly, [and] using another drummer [for the recording sessions].”
Sorum has revealed that the material to be featured on this new album is “a cross between The Doors, Pink Floyd, Wilco, David Gray, Peter Murphy and Portishead.” Sounds thrilling.
Songtitles set to appear on the album are ‘The Sea’, ‘What Ziggy Says’, ‘Blue Josephine’, ‘Gone’, ‘Lady Of The Stone’, ‘Killers N’ Lovers’, ‘Ode To Nick Drake’ and ‘Land Of The Pure’, the latter of which is “about children of Pakistan,” says Sorum.
Sorum’s new CD will be the follow-up to 2004’s ‘Hollywood Zen’, his previous solo effort which featured his GN’R/VR bandmates Slash and Duff alongside Giuffria legends Chuck Wright and Lanny Cordola, the latter co-producing with the veteran sticksman.
