Duff McKagan unveils music video for “Longfeather”

Author Hernan Osuna - 13.9.2023

Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan has shared a new music video for his song “Longfeather“. The track is taken from McKagan’s upcoming album “Lighthouse”, set to be released on Friday, October 20, 2023. Watch the Connor Ellmann, Kuj Durollari, and Arben Durollari-directed clip below.

The new album will be available in several limited variations, including CD, deluxe CD with fold-out photo print, cassette, standard black vinyl, and deluxe vinyl in a host of colours, each with lithographs, booklet, sticker, and guitar pick, and certified signed deluxe versions.

Duff on “Lighthouse”: “The crashing….the cresting waves, the falling through of all that surrounds you. Life sometimes tosses us around, and we feel the want of comfort and the pull of home. A ship tossed like a toy through the Cape, sails ripped and the wood groaning with the scraping of its ballast….a soul trying with all its might to find peace and a centre. Find a lighthouse. I have my lighthouse….its beacon swirling in the darkness with her warmth and promise of nurture, love, laughter, and all that is true. Won’t you be my lighthouse, give me light,…and bring me home.

Special guests on the album include Guns N’ Roses bandmate Slash on the track “Hope” (also featuring drummer Abe Laboriel Jr.), and Alice In Chains vocalist/guitarist Jerry Cantrell on “I Just Don’t Know“. Iggy Pop also appears on an alternative take of the album’s title track.
