Slash has shot down reports that Guns N' Roses has been approached to record a new song for the upcoming movie Terminator: Dark Fate. A rumor surfaced last week that four members of the band went to a private viewing of the upcoming Arnold Schwarzenegger sequel to see if they want to put a song on the soundtrack.

But during an appearance on Trunk Nation, Slash denied the reports, saying, "There's nothing in the Terminator movie. These rumors, they take off and then they get a life of their own. And you can't reel 'em in. They just sort of get tossed around in the wind. Anyway, but, yeah, so there's nothing in there, in that."

The guitarist said that aside from a short U.S. tour starting later this month and some possible live work next March, the band is focused on new music. He explained, "Obviously, everybody knows that we're working on new material, which is really exciting, and so, that's really primarily what the focus is."

Asked if the band will release individual songs or intends to create a full album, Slash replied, "All things considered, it's like the Wild West out there; there is no formula for any of it. (Laughs) I haven't seen any routine kind of thing that works. I mean, you can do any one of a million different things to releasing a record. But at the end of the day, I think that we will ultimately release a full album."

Ever since Slash, singer Axl Rose and bassist Duff McKagan reunited in 2016 as Guns N' Roses, rumors have been circulating that new music from the band -- the first to feature the three founding members since 1993 -- was in the works.
