Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators unveiled a new song called “Fill My World.” In a press release, Slash opened up about the song, saying, “Musically, I came up with it at my studio.”
He continued, “But I sent it to Myles, and he came back with these heartfelt lyrics. I thought it was about the loss we’ve all been suffering during this dark period, and then he told me it was about his dog. laughs I said, ‘Well, you know, everybody has had somebody that they love affected by this, so…'”
Myles added, “So, I have this little Shih Tzu named Mozart – he tries to act all tough, but he’s really not. And on one occasion we couldn’t get home, our flight was delayed and there was a really intense storm over our house. We have one of those little camera systems to keep an eye on the dog when we can’t be there, and we saw him just freaking out. It was heartbreaking to watch. It terrified the little guy. So, the narrative of the song is inspired by what I imagined he might have been thinking as it all went down. And his plea to us to come home.”
“Fill My World” is the second single from the band’s upcoming album 4, due out on February 11th.
