Audiences are getting another preview of 4, the next album from Slash ft. Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators.

The group debuted the record’s second single, ‘Fill My World‘ Friday. The song is the album’s second single behind ‘The River is Rising.’ The band premiered the song’s video Oct. 22.

The track listing for 4 is noted below.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Fill My World’ is a neo-classic rock type composition. The steady time keeping and the vocals pair well with the bass line to make for even more enjoyment.

Slash talked about the song’s musical and lyrical content in a prepared statement.

“Musically, I came up with it at my studio,” he said. “It was just the opening riff, and then the underlying chord changes started to come out in my mind. I wasn’t sure if I was going to pursue it or not, but I had to record it and make a demo. I thought, I don’t know what the guys are going to think… Because it has a certain sentimental kind of feel to it. But I sent it to Myles, and he came back with these heartfelt lyrics. I thought it was about the loss we’ve all been suffering during this dark period, and then he told me it was about his dog. [laughs] I said, ‘Well, you know, everybody has had somebody that they love affected by this, so…”

Kennedy expanded on Slash’s comments.

So, I have this little Shih Tzu named Mozart – he tries to act all tough, but he’s really not,” said Kennedy.” “And on one occasion we couldn’t get home, our flight was delayed and there was a really intense storm over our house. We have one of those little camera systems to keep an eye on the dog when we can’t be there, and we saw him just freaking out. It was heartbreaking to watch. It terrified the little guy. So, the narrative of the song is inspired by what I imagined he might have been thinking as it all went down. And his plea to us to come home.”

Added Kennedy, “When you listen to it, it could apply to a relationship between humans. But I thought it was interesting, at least for me, to sing it from Mozart’s perspective. And to be really honest, as I was singing the song in the studio, at one point you can hear my voice crack a little bit. It was getting to me. So, it’s definitely sung from the heart. And I’m man enough to admit it!”
