Stone Temple Pilots have unveiled a lyric video for their new single “Meadow,” which features newly announced singer – “The X-Factor” contestant Jeff Gutt. The track is the lead release from the band's as-yet-untitled 7th studio album, which will drop in early 2018 via Rhino.
Billboard reports on Dec. 15 that “Meadow” is one of 14 songs that Gutt has been working on with STP founding members Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz. The release will be the Grammy winner's much anticipated follow up to 2010's self-titled 6th studio album and the first without their original lead singer – the late great Scott Weiland.
The trippy 3:30 minute lyric video features retro-60s psychedelic animation. As Dean DeLeo shreds through the song's opening riffs, kaleidoscopic images of flowers and butterflies flash across the screen as the lyrics flash across the screen, paving the way for the song's opening verse as Gut sings, “Rise and shine, Clementine/There is something about you.”
The San Diego alt-rockers debuted “Meadow” and their new singer at a special gig held on Nov. 14 in Los Angeles at The Troubadour. Fans can check out the official lyric video above and check out a clip of Gutt's live debut here.
Stone Temple Pilots announced earlier this month that they will hit the road in 2018 to support the upcoming album. The tour will be the band's first since the loss of Weiland's first successor – Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, who died in July after exiting STP in 2015.
The tour will kick off March 2 in Santa Clarita, Calif., at The Canyon and wrap up March 17 in Billings, Mont., at Pub Station Ballroom and will be followed by a number of festival stops, including an appearance on April 29 in Sunrise, Fla., at Markham Park as part of Fort Rock Festival, as well as joining the line up on May 29 in Pryor, Okla., at Rocklahoma.
