Guns N’ Roses have released a studio version of their new song “Absurd,” which they debuted live at their August 3 show at Boston's Fenway Park.

As previously reported, “Absurd” is a reworking of “Silkworms,” a previously unreleased track reportedly from the recording sessions for Chinese Democracy.

“Absurd” is the first new single from the band since “Shadow of Your Love,” one of the B-sides featured on the 2018 reissue of Appetite for Destruction. More importantly, it’s the first newly recorded song/single from GN’R to feature Slash and Duff McKagan since the band released their cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil,” which was featured on the soundtrack for the 1994 film Interview with the Vampire.

“Absurd” can be heard below and is available for streaming and download here. (WARNING: Contains NSFW language)
