As Blabbermouth reports, the aptly titled Slash will packaged through Roadrunner Records in the U.K. as part of “new concept in record distribution.”
The standard album release will be preceded by a “Fan Pack,” in which the Roadrunner Records album will be bundled together with a highly collectable, 132-page special issue of Future Publishing’s Classic Rock magazine dedicated to Slash’s career. This will be the first format of the album available anywhere in the world.
In turn, this partnership, which is said to be the first of its kind, will allow the record to be available in the 4,000+ U.K. retailers that stock the Classic Rock magazine.
A tracklist for the effort has yet to be release, however, according to Rolling Stone, contributions from the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Dave Grohl, Flea, Fergie, and Nichole Scherzinger are expected to be included. Unfortunately, Jack White will not be.
A U.S. release date has also not yet been released. We’ll of course have more details when they become available.
