Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains) Premieres “Brighten” Music Video

Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains) has premiered a new video for the title track of his new album “Brighten.” As previously reported, that effort will be released on October 29 and it will feature members of Guns N’Roses, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Saudade, and more.

Cantrell said the following about the song:

“Pretty early on, I knew “Brighten” was the cornerstone track of the album, and it seemed to fit the body of work as a title. There’s plenty of darkness and edge, but there’s also some light, space, and good vibes.”

The following was also said about the video in an official press release:

“The video, directed by Gilbert Trejo, son of renowned actor Danny Trejo, is loosely based on the fabled “Lotus Eaters” from Homer’s Odyssey. It depicts a story of a man having a psychedelic experience as a result of eating flowers; a “Lotus Eater” is a person who spends their time indulging in instant gratification, pleasure and luxury rather than dealing with anything practical. The story is interspersed with an impassioned live performance from Jerry, Tyler Bates on bass, Greg Puciato on backing vocals and guitar, drummer Abe Laboriel Jr, and pianist Vincent Jones.”

Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains) Premieres “Atone” Music Video

Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains) has premiered a new video for his new song “Atone.” This track is from his new solo album “Brighten,” which will be released on October 29.

Cantrell said the following about the new song:

“As a fan of Ennio Morricone scores and Sergio Leone movies, it’s got a bit of that outlaw vibe, with a cool psycho hillbilly stomp. It’s been kicking around in my head for like 20-plus years, haunting me. Sometimes it takes a while for a good idea to find its best form. Such was the case with ‘Atone.’”

He also added the following about the album, which was co-produced by Tyler Bates and engineered by Paul Fig:

“It was like an old school seventies record where a multitude of musicians played. So it’s not a set band. I got to make music with a bunch of people I never had before, along with friends like Duff [McKagan], Tyler [Bates], and Gil [Sharone] who I’ve worked with previously.”
