SOUNDGARDEN: 'King Animal' Demos To Be Released On Vinyl For 'Record Store Day'
On Record Store Day, April 20, reunited grunge legends SOUNDGARDEN will release a limited-edition vinyl of the "King Animal" demos worldwide. This is the first time these recordings have been available together. The songs will be pressed on 10-inch pink vinyl and the 6-song package will also include a free digital download card.
The demos were recorded by Chris Cornell and SOUNDGARDEN at TNC Studios in Los Angeles, California and Deke River Studio in Seattle, Washington.
Record Store Day celebrates the culture of independent record stores by playing host to in-store events/performances, signings and special product releases on a global scale.
SOUNDGARDEN released the music video on January 29 for "By Crooked Steps", the second single from the quartet's new album, "King Animal". Singer Chris Cornell told The Pulse Of Radio a little about the tune: "It's one of the earlier songs that we started working on, but I also felt like it, to me, is like definitely sort of a new chapter for us. If you wanted to take one example of SOUNDGARDEN progressing, that's a good one for me."
The "By Crooked Steps" clip was directed by FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl, who submitted a treatment for the video on his own initiative after hearing the song.
"King Animal" came out last November and was SOUNDGARDEN's first set of all-new material in 16 years.
