Stone Temple Pilots Finish New Album

During an appearance on “Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon” Jeff Gutt revealed that Stone Temple Pilots have finished their new album. The effort is expected to be released in 2020.

Gutt previously called the album an “acoustic record,” but he has since clarified saying there were “no rules on it having to be acoustic or anything, [but] it has a vibe to it, and it’s beautiful.” He went on to confirm that “it’s all new songs.”

He also added:

“With the ‘Purple’ thing happening, it’s pushing back the other thing. ‘Cause we were only supposed to do a few songs, and it turned into a full record, ’cause we had so much creativity happening at the time. So we just made a whole record.”

Gutt also said the music is “definitely different” and that “it’s a very beautiful record” that he is “really happy with.”
