Entertainment - Guns N Roses release confirmed

Guns N' Roses' long delayed album Chinese Democracy has finally been given a UK release date.

The record, which has been over a decade in the making, will be available in record stores on 24 November.

The announcement comes a day after the self-titled lead single received its first worldwide airplay on Sara Cox's show on Radio 1.

The LP was scheduled for a US release on 23 November but a UK date had not been officially confirmed until now.

Produced by Axl Rose and Caram Costanzo, Chinese Democracy features 14 tracks.

Two of the album's songs have already been released.

Shackler's Revenge recently debuted on the soundtrack of video game Rock Band 2. The band's last record, their covers collection The Spaghetti Incident?, came out in 1993.

Earlier this year, the band took legal action against blogger Kevin Cogill who leaked some of the album's tracks online.

This week, he pleaded not guilty to breaking copyright laws at a Los Angeles court.

Dr Pepper also promised every American a free can if Chinese Democracy finally saw the light of day back in March too.

Now that the release date has been confirmed, the company said they will stand by their promise and allow people to claim a free can by logging onto their website on the US release date on 23 November
