“Watch This”, from Slash’s upcoming self-titled solo album is now available for free download. The track features Nirvana/Foo Fighter’s Dave Grohl and Slash’s former Guns N’ Roses bandmate Duff McKagan.

One of the greatest rock stars of our time is celebrating the release of his new album in true rock star fashion — by dominating the late night scene, late night television that is. Iconic musician SLASH is known for trailblazing guitar work and the innovative, hard-rocking sounds of his new album will be showcased in a series of unique performances slated for release of his first true solo album. Featuring an all-star roster of guest musicians, SLASH, will be available April 6, 2010.

Three new tracks from the upcoming CD have been posted on ESPN and can be heard at the following links:
Starlight
Beautiful Dangerous
I Hold On

Anticipation has been building for the album since the recent release of the first single “By The Sword” featuring Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother, which is currently in rotation at Rock Radio. To kick of his album release, SLASH will be the featured performer at Revolver Golden God Awards with several of his album collaborators making special guest appearances. SLASH will also make a series of late night performances with talk show hosts Jay Leno, George Lopez and Craig Ferguson.

SLASH TV dates to watch (check local listings):
– Tuesday, April 6 — The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (NBC)
– Thursday, April 7 — Lopez Tonight with George Lopez (TBS)
– Thursday, April 7 — Revolver Golden Gods ceremony from Hollywood (airs May 22 on Vh1)

Focused on delivering the most individual, personal project of his career, Slash enlisted the services of producing partner Eric Valentine (Queens of Stone Age, The All-American Rejects) and compiled a rhythm section of bassist Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction) and drummer Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails). Slash handled the majority of arranging and songwriting duties and hand-picked each guest artist. The album’s guests worked collaboratively with Slash to round out the song. Guest musicians include: Ian Astbury, Chris Cornell, Rocco DeLuca, Fergie, Dave Grohl, Myles Kennedy, Kid Rock, Lemmy Kilmeister, Adam Levine of Maroon 5, Duff McKagan, M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold, Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, and Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother.
