February 2022 New Music Releases
It's a good month to be a Guns N’ Roses fan.
Their digital single “Hard Skool” returns with bonus tracks as a four-song physical release on CD, vinyl and cassette. Slash is also issuing his fourth collaboration with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, and first since 2018's Living the Dream.
Elsewhere, Scorpions' upcoming album Rock Believer will be the first to feature drummer Mikkey Dee, who joined in 2016 after Motorhead's demise. The new Eddie Vedder solo album was recorded with his new band the Earthlings, featuring Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and his former bandmate Josh Klinghoffer, a recent Pearl Jam recruit.
Pink Floyd's 1995 live album Pulse arrives on Blu-ray for the first time as part of the Pulse Restored & Re-Edited deluxe box. Director Peter Jackson's deeply fascinating three-part The Beatles Get Back documentary also finds its way to three-disc DVD or Blu-ray this month.
