Guns 'N' Roses has released a never-before-seen music video for the 1987 track "It's So Easy" ahead of the rerelease of Appetite for Destruction.
The previously unreleased video went live on Monday, May 21, and is exclusively available to subscribers of Apple Music.
'Appetite For Destruction' Reissue
According to Spin, the music video was shot by Riki Rachtman at The Cathouse, a rock and roll dance club in Los Angeles, back in 1989. It has been sitting in a vault for over three decades until recently when it was rediscovered.
The music video was restored in 4K UHD with the original conceptual scenes and edited with live footages just as the rock band has intended. It will be included in the newly announced release of Appetite for Destruction: Locked N' Loaded.
The deluxe boxed set will also feature B-sides from the Appetite for Destruction sessions, Live ?!*@ Like A Suicide EP, and three songs from Guns N' Roses's acoustic EP GN'R Lies from 1988. It has a total of 73 songs spread out into four CDs and seven 12-inch 180g vinyl LPs.
A super deluxe collection will offer a 96-page book that contains previously unreleased photos from the personal collection of lead singer Axl Rose.
Other memorabilia include lithographs visualizing songs on the band's debut album, custom hand-made metal cast skull face rings, metal skull face lapel pins, metal skull face and signature-stamped guitar picks, a turntable mat, wall posters, replicas of concert tickets and flyers, a numbered certificate of authenticity, and more — all encased in an elegant faux leather and wood black box with a handmade 3D cross and skull faces.
The Appetite for Destruction: Locked N' Loaded boxed set is set for release on June 29 and will retail for £849.99 or about $1,150. Preorders are now available via the official website of Guns N' Roses.

No Guns N' Roses Classic Lineup Reunion
Earlier this year, fans have been stirred after billboards featuring all five members from the 1987 lineup were spotted in London. Many speculated that the band will soon announce a reunion tour, but they were immediately shot down by former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler.
In an interview with Heavy, the musician confirmed that the billboards were placed to promote the deluxe reissue of Appetite for Destruction this June.
" If it's for the Appetite Of Destruction lineup to be touring together again, which I have been playing for 25 years, nobody's said anything to me," he stated. "So I really don't know."
Former Guns N' Roses manager Fernando Lebeis also called out fans who have been spreading the rumors.
Did some light reading on some forums today, funny how some of you are so clueless, yet speak from a standpoint of assumption and spread the trash you call 'your opinion' as fact in your little community. — Fernando Lebeis (@FLebeis) May 17, 2018
Why not just take what I said and apply it to your 'thinking' of what happens inside this world you follow versus acting like you know more than the rest of us? I am all for smiles and happiness, unlike some... — Fernando Lebeis (@FLebeis) May 17, 2018
