Soundgarden Streams Remix Of Early Classic Flower, Reissue Album Due Next Month

 

90s rock icons Soundgarden have a re-issue and expanded edition coming on March 10th of their début full-length album Ultramega OK via SubPop. You can hear a remix of ‘Flower’ below.

First released on infamous punk label SST, ‘Flower’ was the lead track on the album, and for many fans their introduction to the band. The re-issue was remixed by Soundgarden lead guitarist Kim Thayil and legendary producer Jack Endino.

Thayil commented:

Last year, Jack Endino and I spent a number of weeks remixing Ultramega OK and we’re gonna search for a label and put it out with a beautiful, heavier, warmer mix from Jack, which is something we always felt we had to correct about that release.”

Their début album featured a lineup of Chris Cornell, Thayil, drummer Matt Cameron (Pearl jam) and Hiro Yamamoto on bass, who would be later replaced by Ben Shepherd. Soundgarden issued a box set of their 1991 album Badmotorfinger (A&M) to celebrate its 25th anniversary, which Ghost Cult featured here. The band are currently working on the follow-up to 2012’s King Animal, due for a late 2017 release. They also have a brief US tour planned with festivals and a few headline dates.
