GUNS N’ ROSES have officially released the new song called “Absurd” across all digital music providers. You can listen to it below.
The studio version of “Absurd” — which is a reworked version of a previously unreleased GN’R track called “Silkworms” — arrives three days after the band performed the tune live for the first time during its concert at Boston’s Fenway Park.
“Some of you might have heard this under another name, but this is really kind of absurd to try this,” singer Axl Rose said while introducing the track. “Wasn’t that funny? And they don’t even know the joke yet. Okay, this is called ‘Absurd’.”
After playing the song, Rose said: “See? I never run out of love songs. That was fun. So you heard it here first, a new GUNS N’ ROSES song.”
GUNS N’ ROSES last performed “Silkworms”, which was reportedly written during the “Chinese Democracy” sessions, in 2001.
