Slash, Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators have shared Driving Rain, the first single from their upcoming LP, ‘Living The Dream‘.

Their third album and the follow up to 2014’s ‘World On Fire’ is due to arrive via Slash’s Snakepit Records in partnership with Roadrunner Records on September 21. Talking about the track, the guitarist said:

“This is a riff I specifically remember playing with the guys for the first time at a venue in New Hampshire on the World On Fire tour. It’s a cool guitar part we ran through, and from that point forward the rest of the song started to come together in my mind while on the road. We put it all together this year and Myles came up with a great melody for it.”

Kennedy added:

“The riff is very reminiscent of vintage Aerosmith. It’s got a certain funk to it that’s compelling. Lyrically, it’s a story about somebody who works on the road – it could be a musician, and it could be a travelling salesman. What makes it interesting is this guy has an addict girlfriend or spouse who continues to relapse, and she ends up getting him to come home. She’s miserable and falls back into bad old habits, and that compels him to head back to her to save the day.”
