The Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan announced his third solo album “Lighthouse” that will be out next October 20.
Lighthouse now marks the first full length collection born in McKagan’s studio. Songs like Hope (featuring veteran Paul McCartney drummer Abe Laboriel Jr and melodic lead guitar from Slash) and the philosophical I Just Don’t Know (featuring contributions from McKagan’s longtime friend, Jerry Cantrell of Alice in Chains) see McKagan baring more of his artistic spirit than ever before, fusing acoustic elements with hard-edged rock ‘n’ roll to land at the sweet spot between soul-searching reflection and pure energy.
The 11-song collection is further highlighted by an additional take on the title track, Lighthouse (reprise), joined by the one and only Iggy Pop.

Duff released his first solo album “Believe in Me” in 1993 when he was still a member of Guns N’ Roses. The second and most recent one is “Tenderness” released in 2019.
Last month he released a new EP called “This Is The Song”, that has three songs: the title-track, “Pass You By” and “It Can’t Come Too Soon”.
He revealed in an official statement that the title-track was written during a panic attack and explained that he deals with panic disorder since the age of 16 and during the last years it has “morphed and twisted”.
