You're A Lie" is the second song I brought to the band in 2011 during the last tour," Slash said in a press release. "We worked on it at soundcheck somewhere, I can't remember where. It's gone through some minor changes along the way, mainly the chorus. But for the most part, it's remained true to its original arrangement. I can't wait to play this live."The new album features Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators and will be released May 22.

All the songs were written together by Slash and Kennedy and cameras have been rolling throughout the entire making of the new album.
