Stone Temple Pilots' Self-Titled Album Out May 25th

February 25, 2010 12:00 AM ET
Stone Temple Pilots' first album in nine years will be released on May 25th, the reunited rockers announced today on their official Website. The album, which debuted this week at a listening party at New York's Rose Bar, will boast 12 tracks and a pretty unforgettable title: Stone Temple Pilots. As Rolling Stone previously reported, STP canceled their final concerts of 2009 in order to finish the Don Was-produced LP, their first since 2001's Shangri-La Dee Da.

Check out photos of Scott Weiland onstage and backstage in Austin.

In our Spring Album Preview in the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone (on sale Wednesday, March 3rd), we take a closer look at Stone Temple Pilots, on which Scott Weiland's lyrics touch on his divorce and his brother's death and guitarist Dean DeLeo lays down psychedelic and heavy blues riffs. "Dean really stepped up. His playing is amazing," Weiland tells RS. The album includes gospel-rocking closer "Maver" and the Seventies-tinged "Huckleberry Crumble." You can check out the entire Stone Temple Pilots track list below.

With the arrival of the new album comes a new Stone Temple Pilots tour, and Weiland and company will kick off the festivities with a showcase at this year's SXSW Festival. Full dates after the jump.

“Don't Dream It's Over”

Crowded House | 1986

Early in the sessions for Crowded House's debut album, the band and producer Mitchell Froom were still feeling each other out, and at one point Froom substituted session musicians for the band's Paul Hester and Nick Seymour. "At the time it was a quite threatening thing," Neil Finn told Rolling Stone. "The next day we recorded 'Don't Dream It's Over,' and it had a particularly sad groove to it — I think because Paul and Nick had faced their own mortality." As for the song itself, "It was just about on the one hand feeling kind of lost, and on the other hand sort of urging myself on — don't dream it's over," Finn explained.
