On Feb. 7, Stone Temple Pilots will release Perdida, the band’s first-ever acoustic album.
Featuring compositions written/recorded by guitarist Dean DeLeo, bassist Robert DeLeo, drummer Eric Kretz and vocalist Jeff Gutt specifically for an acoustic arrangement, this will mark a first for the group. It will also be the second official release with Gutt, who has been the band’s lead singer since November 2017, when he took over for Scott Weiland (who passed away in 2015).
On Thursday, Stone Temple Pilots previewed Perdida with a track called “Three Wishes: ”
The haunting “Three Wishes” is the second song released from the record so far, following “Fare Thee Well” in early December:
Back when the band first announced the project, this message accompanied the news:
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.

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.
