The band announced via GunsNRoses.com that the much-delayed album is in talks to be released soon.
Guns N' Roses have announced that their "Chinese Democracy" that has made history by being the most expensive recorded album, is currently "in negotiations" for a release. The album has been shelved for over a decade and lately the talks of actually putting it on the street have been making rounds with the latest challenge coming from Dr. Pepper the soda company.
In their official site, the band which is fronted by Axl Rose posted a message to their fans, confirming that negotiations are under way. They, however, do not elaborate further on what kind of deal is made for the album. The old plan was to release the album via Interscope in March 2007.
If indeed the negotiations lead up to the release, Dr. Pepper may have to give everyone in America a free can of their soda. In March this year, the company said that they will give "everyone in America" a free soda should the album sees the light before the year ends. The band have responded to this, saying they they are "surprised and very happy to have the support".
The band have also signed a new management deal that is represented by Irving Azoff and Andy Gould.
