October 21. 2008
At long last, Guns N’ Roses will have a new single impacting at radio. "Chinese Democracy," the title track to the long-delayed upcoming album of the same name, will arrive at radio tomorrow morning. In other GNR news, the man who allegedly recently leaked tracks from Chinese Democracy has pled innocent in federal court, according to Reuters. Kevin Cogill has been charged by the FBI with violating federal copyright law for posting nine songs from the album online in August, and was arrested in L.A. Chinese Democracy is expected to be released at last in November exclusively at Best Buy.
The following article below appeared at Rolling Stone . com for a moment, and now has evaporated into thin air! Things that make you go…Axl.

Guns N’ Roses Album Finally Arrives, Set For November 23rd
It’s a day many Guns N’ Roses fans thought would never come: Chinese Democracy, the album Axl Rose has labored over for more than a decade, will finally hit stores on Sunday, November 23rd (a departure from the normal Tuesday record release day). The album will be sold exclusively in Best Buy stores and online at Bestbuy.com and iTunes. A music video is in the works, and the band — in which Rose is the only remaining original member — is expected to tour in 2009, according to a source close to G N’ R. “The music is well worth waiting for,” says Gary Arnold, senior entertainment officer for Best Buy, which began negotiating the deal in 2007. “We’ve all heard the stories about this album, and now everybody gets to hear that it’s real.” The album’s 14 songs include the poppy “Better,” the industrial rocker “Shackler’s Revenge” (featured in the new Rock Band 2), the power ballad “If the World” (which plays in the new film Body of Lies), the anthemic title track and a song called “Scraped” that was previously unknown to fans. “It’s going to be a great rock Christmas,” Arnold says. “I just hope it doesn’t take 14 years for the next one.” Bestbuy.com has a listings page up that isn’t taking pre-orders yet but does suggest that there will be several different versions of the album available (or at least a few different covers).
This HERE is a buy link at Best Buy .com that shows a pre-order button and the "alleged" "Chinese Democracy" cover art. This is suppose to be for version # 1 of a rumored 3 different covers. Both on CD and Vinyl. Once you click the actual album cover it takes you to a sub page HERE.
The same link above showed three (3) seperate items earlier in the day for both CD and Vinyl (total of 6 items). Listing the items as Guns N’ Roses Chinese Democracy (Cover A) (Bb) Sku # 9111016 and the next items were listed similarly with (Cover B) (Cb) and (Cover C) (Db).
Here is the "alleged" track list as well.
1. Chinese Democracy
2. Shackler’s Revenge
4. Street Of Dreams
5. If The World
6. There Was A Time
7. Catcher N’ The Rye
