Guns N' Roses Drop Previously Unreleased Video For "It's So Easy"
Earlier this month, Guns N' Roses unveiled plans for Locked N' Loaded, a sprawling 73-track box set celebrating their 1987 debut album Appetite For Destruction. Now the band has given fans a taste of the buried treasure to come by unleashing the previously unreleased music video for "It's So Easy," which is available exclusively via Apple Music.
The video, made up of live footage of GN'R from the Appetite … era, was apparently never finished and has been sitting in the vault for 30 years until now. Capturing the band in their heyday, it provides a glimpse back at the chaos and debauchery the band became know for in the late 1980s.
"It's So Easy" is the second track on the band's now-classic debut, and while it never got the same amount of attention from radio or MTV that other songs from the album with music videos received, such as "Welcome To The Jungle," "Paradise City," or "Sweet Child 'O Mine," it remained a fan favorite and a staple of the band's live set, including their Use Your Illusion World Tour, which ran 1991–1993.
Locked N' Loaded arrives on June 29, chock-full of GN'R rarities including 49 unreleased tracks on four CDs and seven 12" 180-gram vinyl LPs. Two of those vinyl LPs are the album remastered from the original analog tapes. The box set also comes packed with extras, such as a 96-page hardbound book with unreleased photos from Axl Rose's personal archive, 12 new illustrations depicting each song on the album, and replica memorabilia from the era.
GN'R will hit the road through Europe, continuing on their Not In This Lifetime… Tour from June 3 in Berlin, Germany, through the end of July. The tour was touted as one of last year's most profitable runs, and hit the top slot in Billboard's Hot Tours chart in October 2017.
The newly unearthed video for "It's So Easy" will also be included in Locked N' Loaded, which is available for pre-order via the band's website.
