You’ve heard him sing alongside Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash and rock band Alter Bridge. Now, it’s time to experience Myles Kennedy as a solo artist. Kennedy has announced the details for his first solo album, “Year of the Tiger,” which is due out on March 9, 2018. He’s been talking about this album for a while now, so the anticipation is certainly building.

As Kennedy describes it, “Year of the Tiger” is the singer’s “most personal and emotionally challenging record yet.” The 12-track set is the first bit of new music from Kennedy since his latest album with Alter Bridge, 2016’s “The Last Hero.”

In a recent interview with Audio Ink Radio, Kennedy discussed how it feels to have fans so dedicated to Alter Bridge more than a decade after they formed. “I’m pleasantly surprised, because I never take anything for granted, and I know that in the music business, people tend to have a short shelf life,” he said. “So, if someone would have told me in 2004 that in 2016 we’d still be doing this, then I would have been very happy. It’s great to get to play music.”

He added, “Knowing that we’ve been able to build this up and it take all over the world and have a fan base and people that are interested in what we do is awesome, and I don’t take that for granted.”
