“We recorded a lot of things before Chinese was out,” Rose said in an interview with Revolver (via Rolling Stone). “We’ve worked more on some of those things and we’ve written a few new things. But basically, we have what I call the second half of Chinese. That’s already recorded. And then we have a remix album made of the songs from Chinese. That’s been done for a while, too.”
GNR are currently holed up in Vegas at a residence for Hard Rock Hotel & Casino until July 7, after which Axl says “we’re going to start looking very seriously at what we’re doing in that regard.”
The album was also previously hinted at by guitarist Richard Fortus at the actually named Golden God Awards in Los Angeles in April of this year. “We are working on stuff and hopefully very soon we’re going to have new stuff out,” said Fortus. “Well, in the next year.”
It was 15 years between the announcement of Chinese Democracy and its release, so “in the next year” is nothing for fans. But, Axl is also the Boy who Cried Chinese Democracy, so until a date appears, don’t hold your breath.
