Stone Temple Pilots — Robert DeLeo, Dean DeLeo, Eric Kretz and Jeff Gutt — will release a new album on February 7, 2020, but Perdida will truly be a first for the band.
It’s an entirely acoustic-based record, featuring ten new compositions written by the musicians specifically for acoustic arrangement.
Here’s a song titled “Fare Thee Well” as a preview:
The accompanying message, which includes information regarding an acoustic tour supporting the record:
Hi everyone, We’d like to tell you about our new record, Perdida. It will arrive on February 7th. It’s a collection of 10 songs with an acoustic foundation. The kind of record we’ve been wanting to make for years. We are thrilled to share it with all of you and we will be setting out on tour in February playing several songs from the new record along with many other songs from our catalog. We look forward to seeing all of you and as always… we love you.
See you soon.

This news came on the eve of the fourth anniversary of the passing of longtime Stone Temple Pilots vocalist Scott Weiland, who died in 2015 after a prolonged struggle with addiction.
When released in February, Perdida will be STP’s eighth studio album to date, and the second with new singer Jeff Gutt, who joined ahead of 2018’s self-titled album — which also marked a revitalization of Stone Temple Pilots, who re-emerged with a new singer and new music after the passing of Weiland in 2015 and, also, Chester Bennington in 2017, as the Linkin Park vocalist had recorded an EP with Stone Temple Pilots in 2013.
