If you’ve been waiting for some new Stone Temple Pilots since 2001’s Shangri-La Dee Da, we’ve got some good news for you. Scott Weiland caught up with Spinner “We’re almost finished,” he said of the eagerly awaited Don Was-produced album. “There will probably be 11 songs on the record and we have nine completed already. Then you have to have B-sides for Japan, the UK and the rest of Europe, so we’ll probably record 14 songs total.”
He also commented on the recording process and what it’s like to be back with his former band-mates. “It’s always been easy. We have a method that we use and it’s pretty basic,” Weiland says. “For the most part, Robert and Dean [DeLeo] write the instrumental riffs and then amongst the three of us we arrange the songs and then I write all the melodies and the lyrics.”
The new album is expected to release in 2010.
