LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Nine tracks purported to be from a brand new Guns N' Roses album to be called "Chinese Democracy," appeared briefly on a music blogger's website on June 18th.
Described as "mastered, finished" tracks, they were quickly taken down after an cease-and-desist order from the band's representatives, Billboard reported.
Its not the first time that some of these songs have escaped into the wild, six of them have made it out before, but appeared most recently sounding much more polished.
According to Billboard, the three previously unheard songs were "Rhiad and the Bedouins," "If the World" and a track which has yet to be named.
The album has been particularly challenging for the band to get out the door, with Axl Rose reportedly burning through than $13 million in production costs. In 2007, Irving Azoff and Andy Gould took over what has been described as negotiations with Interscope to help the finished album see the light of day. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
