Slash and his backing band, Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, have finished mxing the third album to be released under the Slash solo banner.

AsĀ Blabbermouth notes, a total of 17 songs, including one instrumental, were laid down for the follow-up to 2012's "Apocalyptic Love," which will be mastered next weekend. Slash tweeted earlier tonight: "Artwork is set. Will announce the title soon. Can't wait to unleash it!"

Slash recently chatted with the UK's Kerrang! magazine about his third solo album. He remarked, "All I can tell you is that it's a really f--king great record. I'm very proud of it, but I don't want to get into, 'Oh, dude, it's epic,' or 'It's the heaviest thing ever.' It's very rock and roll, and, as always, it's very diverse in feel, and I'm just super, super proud of everything that we collectively put into making the thing. It's just going to be a b-tchin' record."

Slash added that he and his band have grown a lot together during the making of the new CD, saying, "The band has become so synergetic. I showed the music to the guys, and what they wrote flowed immediately. I was really amazed at how, from the second we started pre-production up 'till now, the record just flowed. It's rare that it happens like that."

The new album is tentatively due out in September. Slash released his first self-titled solo effort in 2010.

The legendary guitarist employed a different vocalist on each track of his first album, before settling on Alter Bridge member Kennedy for both touring and eventually recording.

Slash and Aerosmith will team up for a US tour this summer.

Mix is finished on the new record! Mastering next weekend. Artwork is set. Will announce the title soon. Can't wait to unleash it! iiii]; )'

    someone please explain to me how the **** that tophat is staying on his head!!!
    I believe it has clips on the inner rim that he uses to clip to his hair. But idk if that's how it is really done.
    So excited for this. There were some clips in the Real to Reel series that sounded awesome.
    I am excited. Hope it is a little heavier than the last one (of course AL had some pretty heavy songs as well, but overall it didn't really kill it). Well, it's always great to hear new stuff from Slash and Myles
    Meh, I like Slash but to be honest, if this is just another album of 4 minute blues rock songs I'll pass.
    That's what I found. Apocalyptic Love was just eh. It's weird I like Slash, I like Myles Kennedy but it was just eh. Hopefully it has some variety like the first album. Say what you will about Axl but at least he wanted to shake it up with each release
    While I agree that the first solo album was better, it's a bit of an unfair comparison because that was a compilation of singers from different genres. And Apocalyptic Love had some variety, for example Far and Away, Not For Me, No More Heroes and Carolina.
    Slash's music is not all great without AXL.There, I said it, bring on the thumbs down lol
    I completely agree. Slash is a workhorse guitarist, no doubt, everything since GnR with the exception of a couple Velvet Revolver tunes has been weak. Especially with Miles Kennedy. It's painful to hear that turd sing Axl's parts.
    Oh please, just the instrumental Watch This was easily up there with GNR, not to mention both Snakepit albums. And Carolina had a very AFD vibe. VR was his weakest period if anything. Lots of filler.
    Damn....yea how does his top hat stay on.... Especially with all his hair.
