Stone Temple Pilots share the latest single from their upcoming acoustic album Perdida.
Perdida is the band's second album with new singer Jeff Gutt. It was recorded mostly with vintage instruments, with violin and a marxophone featuring prominently alongside the acoustic guitars.
Speaking to Spin, who debuted the track, Gutt said of “Miles Away”: “That was something Robert (bassist) brought in and he was excited about it. When Robert comes into the studio excited about an idea, you listen. So we were all ears. After that, the song kind of just fell into place, with all of us working it out. I really gravitated toward it because I can relate it to so many things that have happened in my life. So I tried to put a personal touch on it where I could.”
This is the second single from the album that arrives this Friday, the first was "Fare Thee Well."
“This is an album we’ve been wanting to make for quite some time,” Robert DeLeo previously said of the LP. “Most of our songs start acoustically and we felt these would come across in the most genuine way if we kept them that way.”
Gutt, who wrote the majority of Perdida’s lyrics, added: “I was looking back at difficult moments in my life. I was trying to be vulnerable and that’s a scary thing to do, but it’s also kind of comfortable.”
An unplugged tour in support of Perdida was unfortunately canceled in January after Gutt announced he had to undergo a surgery.
