With his two new Apple iOS-based applications, Slash is aiming to enhance the music listening experience for fans. Slash360 invites fans to enter his studio to relive the recording of his recent album Apocalyptic Love through six 360-degree spherical, panoramic cameras. "The app captures the energy of the band in the best way and MATIvision allows fans to experience the album just as if they were in the room with us," said Slash in a statement.

There are two versions of Slash360: an introductory version featuring the track "You're a Lie" plus extras for $0.99, and also a full version with the entire album and more for $4.99. The app is available now on iTunes.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
