Stone Temple Pilots have released the title track from their forthcoming acoustic album, Perdida. Bassist Robert DeLeo recently told Glide magazine that the song evolved the most out of all the tunes on the album, explaining, “I think that one kind of built the most considering there’s strings — there’s a lot in that song — but I heard all that stuff when I wrote it. I definitely heard it all but it was just a matter of getting it all together.”
“Perdida” follows “Three Wishes” and “Fare Thee Well” as the third track to be heard from Perdida.
The album was recorded at drummer Eric Kretz‘s Bomb Shelter Studios in Los Angeles on vintage instruments, including flute, alto saxophone, guitarrón, viola, cello and vintage keyboards.
Initially, the record was meant to be only an EP, but the new approach inspired the group to write more, especially about heartbreak and grief.
Perdida is out February 7th, but a planned tour to accompany the album had to be canceled so that singer Jeff Gutt can recover from a herniated disc. The group will hit the road later this year with Nickelback.
