Soundgarden are premiering an unreleased song, “Kristi”, as a preview to their forthcoming collection, “Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path.”
Originally recorded during sessions for 1996’s “Down On The Upside”, it’s one of two previously unissued songs featured on the 3-disc, 50-track rarities compilation of original B-sides, instrumentals, covers and demos curated by guitarist Kim Thayil.
The second unreleased tune, “Storm”, can be heard here.
Due November 24, the package’s three discs breakdown as follows:
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.
