Stone Temple Pilots continue to slowly unveil songs from their highly anticipated self-titled studio album, which drops March 16 via Rhino. The Grammy winners have released an official audio clip for the track “Never Enough.”
The San Diego grunge pioneers premiered the song via Yahoo Music on March 8. “Never Enough” is now available for streaming and is the fourth track to surface from the album, following the release of the singles “Meadow,” “Roll Me Under” and “The Art of Letting Go.”
The 3:47 minute clip opens with an insistent and explosive two-note pattern intro, hammered out on guitar, bass and drums, before falling into a pedal groove, which is anchored by bassist Dean DeLeo and is vaguely reminiscent of The Doors' 1970 live staple “Roadhouse Blues.” The 70s retro-rocker is a good showcase for new lead vocalist Jeff Gutt, who struts his stuff on the first verse, singing, “You're all wrong/But no bite/It's alright/You're in the middle.”
Self-produced by band co-founders Dean and Robert DeLeo, the self-titled effort is STP's 7th studio release and the first with Gutt as lead vocalist. The album is available here for pre-order here in CD, digital, vinyl and streaming formats. Check out the audio for "Never Enough" above.
