STONE TEMPLE PILOTS recently recorded a new song, "All In The Suit That You Wear", for an upcoming greatest-hits collection, according to Rolling Stone.
"It rocks," frontman Scott Weiland told the magazine, who insisted the band's hiatus has been overplayed in the press. "STP's never broken up . . . we just have made a decision to take time apart and do different things. The DeLeo brothers [Dean and Robert] are doing some producing right now, and Eric [Kretz] just built a studio. We worked for ten years, we made five records, we sold 25 million records around the world, and we felt like we needed a break."
Weiland, who is currently singing in VELVET REVOLVER with former GUNS N' ROSES members Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum, hasn't dismissed the possibility of another STP album down the road. "There's always hope," he said. "There's always hope."
The as-yet-untitled greatest hits set, which is expected before the end of the year, will feature material from STP's five albums: "Core" (1992), "Purple" (1994), "Tiny Music — Songs From the Vatican Gift Shop" (1996), "No. 4" (1999) and "Shangri-La De Da" (2001).
