Merely a week after hitting the studio to work on a new album, guitar icon Slash has now confirmed 16 new tracks ready to go. In a brief Twitter update, the axeman noted: "16 tracks worked up and completed. Plus an instrumental? Hard to decide what goes on the record, what will be bonus tracks. It's all cool." As reported, Slash also confirmed recently jamming with ZZ Top axeman Billy Gibbons. Whether the session was related with the new album yet remains to be seen. When it comes to release date, the guitarist announced plans for the record to tentatively drop in early 2014. Slash's latest studio effort, "Apocalyptic Love," saw its release in May 2012 through Dik Hayd International.
