Stone Temple Pilots stream 1994 live version of Interstate Love Song

Stone Temple Pilots are streaming audio of a 1994 live version of “Interstate Love Song” as a preview to next month’s arrival of a 25th anniversary edition of their second album, “Purple.”

The track is one of 17 songs captured at the New Haven Coliseum in New Haven, CT while the California band was on the road just two months after the release of their second record, that make up a full concert as featured on a 3CD/1LP “Purple: Super Deluxe Edition” that will be available on September 13.

Presented alongside a newly-remastered version of the original studio album on both CD and vinyl, plus unreleased versions of album tracks and rarities, the 25th anniversary reissue explores the making of the album with a mix of unreleased music that includes demos (“Unglued” and “Army Ants”) and early versions of album tracks (“Meat Plow” and "Interstate Love Song"), plus acoustic recordings (“Big Empty”).

The collection also features three unreleased live performances from the 1994 KROQ Acoustic Christmas show, including a version of “Christmastime Is Here” from A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Produced by Brenden O’Brien, “Purple” originally debuted at No. I in the US while going on to sell more than 6 million copies in the country.

In addition to the Super Deluxe Edition, the milestone reissue project will also be available both digitally and as a 2-CD Deluxe Edition.

The anniversary package will be issued in sync with a fall co-headlining US tour that will see the group joined by Rival Sons.

The four-week run will see full sets from both acts, as Stone Temple Pilots continue to tour in support of their 2018 self-titled album with new singer Jeff Gutt, and Rival Sons promote their new record, “Feral Roots.”
