Stone Temple Pilots have finally confirmed that former ‘X Factor‘ contestant Jeffrey Adam Gutt will be the new vocalist for the band. Not only that, but they’ve also released the first single with the new front man. Take a listen to ‘Meadow’ below!
‘Meadow’ is the first taste of music from their seventh full-length studio album, which is currently being mixed by Failure‘s Ken Andrews for a spring 2018 release. Drummer Eric Kretz said this on the track, “It sounds like STP. It has all the elements. It’s modern but still has that classic sound. So it kind of jumped out at us as a good representation.”
Bassist Robert DeLeo added, “I think there’s still Stone Temple Pilots music to be made. And between Dean and Eric and myself, we know each other so well at this point that it’s the kind of thing where, when you’re away from it, you don’t really think about it. But then when you play together you regain a certain respect for what each one of us does individually, and as a trio musically. That thankful attitude and the gratitude toward being able to make music together is really a special thing. We’re not gonna be around forever, you know? So we just want to be making music. And we want Jeff to be a part of that.”
