Stone Temple Pilots have released “The Art Of Letting Go,” the third track the band has shared from its upcoming self-titled seventh studio LP.
The song follows “Meadow” and “Roll Me Under” and showcases a softer side of the band and new singer Jeff Gutt. Guitarist Dean DeLeo told us that Gutt played an important role in bringing the song to life: “Jeff had a huge hand in kind of arranging and putting that song where it is to really tailor it to his vocal. That song, when we really sat down and did that, we really realized, ‘This is a nice piece of music,’ and Jeff had an immense part in putting that together.”
The new STP album is Gutt’s recording debut with the group and arrives on March 18th.
