Stone Temple Pilots Announce Acoustic Album, Tour
Stone Temple Pilots have announced their second album with singer Jeff Gutt.
Rolling Stone reports the acoustic album is called "Perdida", which is Spanish for "Loss".
The album, which was largely recorded on vintage instruments, comes out February 7th.
Gutt, who wrote most of the lyrics, told Rolling Stone,
“I was looking back at difficult moments in my life. I was trying to be vulnerable and that’s a scary thing to do, but it’s also kind of comfortable.”
Listen to the first single, "Fare Thee Well" above.
Gutt says one song does touch on the tragic losses of both Scott Weiland and Chester Bennington, it's called “I Didn’t Know The Time".
Drummer Eric Kretz says
“Recording an acoustic album like Perdida is something the band has wanted to do for many years. We performed on ‘MTV Unplugged’ in 1993, and we usually play acoustic mini-sets on tour, so when Robert and Dean started playing their new songs for us during our tour last year, we knew right away they would be perfect for an acoustic album.”
Track Listing for "Perdida"
1. “Fare Thee Well”
2. “Three Wishes”
4. “I Didn’t Know The Time”
6. “She’s My Queen”
7. “Miles Away”
8. “You Found Yourself While Losing Your Heart”
9. “I Once Sat At Your Table”
STP have announced an intimate, acoustic tour to coincide with the release of the new album. The set lists will include songs from the new album and tracks from previous. Kretz says,
“We’ll finally get a chance to play songs from our catalog that we’ve never played live, or in some cases, haven’t played live in more than 20 years.”
