After releasing the song “Perhaps” on Q104.3 followed by its official music video, Guns N’ Roses debuted their new single at their recent Pittsburgh PNC Park performance.
As he introduces the song, Axl Rose told the crowd:
“Forgive me if I don’t run around and try to project as much because I’m gonna try to figure out how to fucking sing it live.
“And I like to think of when we wrote this song, it was like the immaculate inception.”
After the set, the singer then said:
“Thank you. Now that was an experience.”
Back in June, there was a lot of excitement when Guns N’ Roses played a sound check of “Perhaps” before a show in Tel Aviv, Israel. The song was among those that had caused a buzz from the Chinese Democracy recording sessions, which had leaked online in 2019 along with other 2000 and 2001 demos that were found in a storage unit previously owned by former A&R executive Tom Zutaut.
“Perhaps” is the third song released by Guns N’ Roses since their reunion in 2016, along with “Absurd” and “Hard Skool” in 2021. These songs are from the same recording sessions as Chinese Democracy and now include new parts recorded by Slash and Duff McKagan.
As of August 17th, “Perhaps” has been officially aired on radio stations across the country and is now available on streaming platforms. Meanwhile, Guns N’ Roses revealed that their next song, “The General,” will serve as the B-side to the “Perhaps” vinyl single that is set to come out on Oct. 26.
