London, June 21 : Nine tracks from Guns N' Roses' 14-years-in-the-making album "Chinese Democracy" have been leaked on the Internet.
The nine tracks were posted on a little-known rock website, www.antiquiet.com. A poster named Skwerl made the songs available on June 18, without explaining their source, reports the Telegraph.
The long-awaited sixth studio album from Axl Rose' band, which is reported to have cost in excess of 13million dollars, is rumoured to be finished, with the group currently in negotiations about a release.
The poster read: "I always said that the more that Axl and Geffen jerked around trying to figure out how to release this finally finished album that we've all been waiting over 13 years for, the greater the chances would be that it would slip out of a pressing plant or office somewhere and wind up in the hands of some asshole with a blog. So..."
Though the songs have been removed from the website, they have spread throughout the Internet, appearing on filesharing sites as well as YouTube.
Once released, the album will be the first original recording from Guns N' Roses since the 1991 releases of Use Your Illusion.
