Axl Rose is working on a new Guns N' Roses album.
The 'Paradise City' singer has been busy working on material with his bandmates and he has promised fans they won't have to wait 15 years like they did for last LP 'Chinese Democracy' - which was eventually released in 2008.
He said: "All the guys are writing, and we recorded a lot of songs over the years. We'll figure out what we feel best about. 'Chinese Democracy' was done in piecemeal with one person here and one there at different times. 'Appetite For Destruction' was the only thing written with lyrics and melody fitting the guitar parts at the same time. After that, I got a barrage of guitar songs that I was supposed to put words to, and I don't know if that was the best thing for the band. I do want to lean more toward lyrics and melody."
Axl insists he isn't to blame for the huge delay between 1993 album 'The Spaghetti Incident?' and 'Chinese Democracy' and insists the LP became so problematic to make because of the difficulties of working in the music industry.
Speaking about the record, he told the USA Today newspaper: "I had to deal with so many other things that don't have to do with music but have to do with the industry. There's such a loss of time. It was more about survival. There wasn't anyone to work with or trust. Someone would come in to help produce and the reality was they just wanted to mix it and get it out the door. They had a different agenda. (The next album) will come out sooner."
Axl also admitted he can't see an end to his feud with the other original members of Guns N' Roses - which includes Slash and Duff McKagan - coming to an end in the near future and he blames the hard rock group's huge worldwide success for their acrimonious split.
He said: "I feel that ball's not in my court. I'm surviving this war, not the one who created this war ... I was really naive. I thought the success of 'Appetite for Destruction' would bring everyone together more. It did the exact opposite. They got success and wanted to run in their own directions. I thought they'd go, 'Whoa, it did work.' But they wanted to do their own huge bigger success off of Guns."
Amelia Lily is "grateful" her debut single didn't go to number one.
The 18-year-old singer - who shot to fame after finishing third in 'The X Factor' UK in 2011 - was "over the moon" when 'You Bring Me Joy' reached the second spot in the UK Singles Chart, but she is pleased she has something left to aspire to with her next release.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I wasn't gutted at all to miss out on a number one single, I was more over the moon to be honest. I was at midweek number one right until the day before and when I found out it was number two I was kind of grateful because I thought to myself, 'I've got somewhere to go now.'
"But if I had got to number one straight away then I wouldn't have anything to aim at."
Amelia is hoping her second single, 'Shut Up (And Give Me Whatever You've Got)' will achieve her goals and she "can't wait" for the song to be released in January 2013.
She added: "I'm really, really excited for the second single now. I'm very thankful to everyone who helped me with 'You Bring Me Joy', but I can't wait for the next single. Bring it on."
The blonde beauty's next project will see her make a one-off appearance in 'Shrek The Musical' as part of this year's BBC Children in Need POP Goes the Musical 2012 at London's Theater Royal Drury Lane next month, and she admits it will be a "dream come true" to appear onstage in the West End.
She added: "I am extremely honored to be part of this project, it's been a dream of mine since I was a little girl to appear on the West End stage and to be able to play one of the lead characters on 'Shrek' for one of the most famous songs on the show, 'I'm a Believer', I'm so excited."

Metallica paid tribute to Green Day after replacing them at a festival.
The heavy metal group stepped in for the 'Oh Love' punk band at the Voodoo Festival in New Orleans, after they cancelled all forthcoming dates due to frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's ongoing rehab.
Two songs into their set, Metallica singer James Hetfield told the crowd: "We! Are! Green Day! - Except a little taller!"
He later added: "You're hoping Green Day are going to show up, right? So am I. They're getting help. They're getting it sorted out. The world needs them."
He also dedicated the track 'Battery' to the front man, saying: "This one's for Billie."
During their encore, Metallica - which also includes Kirk Hammett, Lars Ulrich and Robert Trujillo - played the opening to Green Day's 'American Idiot', although James cut it short and told the crowd, "We can't play that song."
Green Day announced yesterday they are cancelling all scheduled dates in 2012 and postponing shows they had scheduled for 2013.
Bassist, Mike Dirnt, wrote on the band's website: "The timing for this isn't ideal, but Billie Joe's well-being is our main concern.
"We are happy to say that Billie Joe is doing well, and we want to thank you all for the outpouring of support and well wishes that we have received, and we can't wait to see you all again soon."
Eminem has sparked speculation he will release a new album next year.
'The Real Slim Shady' rapper has hinted his eighth record will come out in 2013 by having the date sewn into a piece of official merchandise.
Ahead of this weekend's baseball World Series showdown between the Detroit Tigers and the San Francisco Giants, a post on Eminem's Facebook page read: "For a limited time only in honor of the big games and the hometown team's return to The D, we are pleased to offer the Eminem Baseball Tribute Hat in both home and away colors.
"Side panel is dedicated to the landmark Eminem solo albums. A portion of the proceeds will go to The Marshall Mathers Foundation. Get them here. (sic)"
The hat features Eminem's logo on the front and at the side is the proclamation 'World Champion' followed by eight years.
The first seven dates: 1996, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2009 and 2010 were all years in which the rapper released an album.
A final date, 2013, follows underneath, leading fans to conclude he will release new material in the coming months.
The rapper has previously said he has recorded a song with New York rapper Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga for his new album.
He said: "Yeah, I got this crazy record with Gaga and Kendrick for the upcoming LP. Its called 'Street Lights', and its just a real upbeat record."
Bon Jovi are selling tickets for their shows for just £12.50 - about $20 bucks.
The 'Livin' On A Prayer' rockers have decided to make seats for their upcoming concerts affordable to all their fans after The Rolling Stones caused scandal by charging between £95 ($152) and £375($600) for their 50th anniversary shows.
Rob Hallett, Bon Jovi's UK tour promoter from AEG Live, said the band felt rock fans were being priced out of the market and were determined to act.
He said: "I was delighted when they came to me insisting on ticket prices for the 'Because We Can' tour next year that enabled all to attend.
"If we are to survive as an industry we need to move away from the elitist image of high prices and even higher secondary prices [for tickets resold].
"After all, rock and roll always was and always should be the music of the people, and that means everyone."
A Bon Jovi source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "We are in the middle of a recession and that's why the band think £12.50($20) is perfect."
While the most expensive ticket for a Rolling Stones concert is £375 ($600), they are being sold on for thousands.
However, a spokesperson for promoter Virgin Live - who are putting on The Rolling Stones shows - insists the pricing is fair.
He added: "The ticket prices are in fact spread over a range of costs and are comparable and similar to other huge shows and attractions."
Band member Ronnie Wood has also defended the cost, saying: "I'd pay it. We already spent, like, a million on rehearsing, and we're not even halfway through. And the stage is going to cost millions and millions."
Foster the People frontman Mark Foster was kicked out of a Prince gig on October 25, 2012.
The 'Pumped Up Kicks' singer was escorted out of The Sayers Club in Hollywood when he was spotted by security playing on his mobile phone, as the gadgets and similar types of recording equipment have been banned from the 'Purple Rain' singer's private shows.
According to TMZ, Mark pleaded with security to let him back in to the intimate concert after insisting he was only checking his phone and wasn't trying to take a picture as well as explaining he is in Foster the People and saying he hadn't closed his bar tab.
After a few minutes of trying to negotiate his way back into the gig, security gave him the green light but not until they had checked out his mobile phone.
Mark didn't have any hard feelings about the incident, which he claims was just a misunderstanding as he was simply checking a text message from a friend when he was spotted by security.
As he was leaving the venue, he told the gossip website: "It's cool ... Prince doesn't play in front of 100 people every night."
And now I must listen to their addictive hit Pumped Up Kicks.... like I did a million times around this time last year.
