Slash, Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators have dropped a new track.

Following The River Is Rising, Fill My World marks the second preview of their upcoming LP, '4', due out on February 11 via new label Gibson Records in partnership with BMG Records.

In contrast to the rocking previous single, the new ballad takes on a slightly stripped back approach, guided by a Sweet Child O' Mine-esque guitar melody topped with some tender, emotion-fuelled lyrics. Slash said:

"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. [laughs] I said, 'Well, you know, everybody has had somebody that they love affected by this, so...'"

Singer Kennedy added: "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!"

The band will support the LP with a previously announced North American tour beginning on February 8 in Portland, Oregon. Tickets are on sale now.

In related news, Guns N' Roses are due to return to the UK and Europe in summer 2022. Myles Kennedy, meanwhile, continues his current UK tour at the O2 Academy Glasgow tonight. He put out his sophomore solo LP, 'The Ides Of March', in May.
