Rumors of the new song’s impending release began to circulate last week, after a fan was told about it by frontman Axl Rose after the pair met backstage at a recent show in Atlantic City.
Initially titled ‘Jackie Chan’, the track was recorded during the sessions for Guns N’ Roses’ infamous 2008 album ‘Chinese Democracy’, but never made the album. Short clips of the song have since been posted online, and a full version leaked out in 2019.
If “Hard School” is released in the near future, it will come as the band’s second number one for 2021, after the single “Absorbed” in August. The band debuted ‘Absurd’ – another ‘Chinese Democracy’ outtake, a reimagining of ‘Silkworm’ – during a show in Boston that took place a few days before it was officially released.
Earlier this month, Guns N’ Roses shortened its set at California’s BottleRock Festival after they broke the event’s curfew. The band was apart through a performance of “Paradise City” – for which Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl made a guest appearance – when stage power was suddenly cut.
In other Guns N’ Roses news, the band recently celebrated a new milestone thanks to their 1998 classic “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” with the track crossing a billion streams on Spotify last month. In July, they launched the official range of bongs and smoking accessories.
