STONE TEMPLE PILOTS/ex-VELVET REVOLVER frontman Scott Weiland recently spoke to Rolling Stone magazine about his sophomore solo album, "Happy In Galoshes", which is scheduled for release on November 25, 2008 via the artist's label Softdrive Records and distributed by New West Records/ RED/Sony. "There's no rules to the stuff I do on my own," Weiland sad. "I don't have to worry about radio playing it.""Happy In Galoshes", produced by Scott Weiland and Doug Grean (VELVET REVOLVER, SHERYL CROW, CRYSTAL METHOD), with select tracks recorded by Steve Albini, features a collection of songs that bring a revitalizing sound to Weiland's highly praised and unique musical style. The album also features several guest appearances including Adrian Young, Tony Kanal and Tom Dumont of NO DOUBT, who, along with Grean and Weiland, penned "Paralysis", which features Young on drums. "She's so Cold" was co-written by Gary Beers from INXS. The album also includes other standout tracks such as the dynamic "Missing Cleveland" and the catchy hooks of "Talk About Love". "If it turns off the STONE TEMPLE PILOTS fans, so be it," Weiland said. "There's art and there's commerce and at the age I'm at, I've accomplished the commerce part."
