Rock guitar legend Slash and modern country powerhouse Chris Stapleton join forces on “Oh Well”, the latest single from Slash’s upcoming guest-filled album, Orgy of the Damned.

Originally written by Fleetwood Mac, the new single showcases Stapleton’s distinctive voice in a heavier context, proving his potential as a rock and roll frontman while Slash’s lead guitar ratchets the tune up to eleven.

“So, this is the original Fleetwood Mac, which was founded by Peter Green, one of the greatest singer-songwriter-guitar players,” Slash said. “[He’s] less known in the public, but very well known to us guitar players re the 60s British blues and he’s up there with Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Nick Taylor. He sort of had a misadventure with drugs and disappeared early in his career, but he had some great fucking songs and ‘Oh Well’ is one of my favorites. I remember hearing the song on the radio when I was probably 13, they used to play both the older version of Fleetwood Mac and the new version of the band with Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham a lot. I always loved this song, and it’s a great guitar riff. I jammed it with the Blues Ball back in the ‘90s, and I’ve played it live here and there. I knew from the beginning I wanted to do the song on this record. It was also one of the songs that I was trying to figure out who would be the right vocalist for it, and one of the ideas I had was Chris Stapleton, who is one of the most brilliant singer songwriters today. He’s also got such a gritty and distinctive voice, so I called him up and he did an amazing job. I mean, his voice is so cool.”

The single arrives as the second preview of Orgy of the Damned, following “Killing Floor” featuring Brian Johnson of AC/DC on vocals and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith on harmonica.
