AUDIO: Soundgarden premiere unreleased instrumental Twin Tower

Soundgarden are premiering an unreleased instrumental, “Twin Tower”, as a preview to their forthcoming collection, “Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path.”

Written by drummer Matt Cameron, the track was recorded at Seattle’s London Bridge Studios in December 1988 during the sessions for the band’s second album, “Louder Than Love.”

Due November 24, “Echo Of Miles” is a 3-disc, 50-track rarities compilation of original B-sides, unreleased tracks, instrumentals, covers and demos curated by guitarist Kim Thayil.

"As album sets go, this one has been fun to collect and compile over the decades," says Thayil. “I personally may have referenced this project a number of times over the years, going back almost twenty of them to the mid-Nineties!"

Disc 1, dubbed "Originals", is filled with Soundgarden songs – mainly B-sides – in addition to two unreleased tunes, "Kristi" and "Storm."

Disc 2, "Covers", presents covers of tracks by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, The Ramones, Devo and others.

Disc 3, "Oddities", offers instrumentals, remixes and demos, including Steve Fisk's unreleased "The Telephantasm (Resurrection Remix)", "Twin Tower" and "Night Surf", an instrumental performed by bassist Ben Shepherd.

The Seattle band’s last studio album, 20102’s “King Animal”, was the group’s first in 16 years following an extended hiatus.
