Jerry Cantrell releases Had To Know video

Jerry Cantrell has released a video for “Had To Know”, a track from his latest solo album, “Brighten.”

Directed by Jim Louvau, the clip, says Cantrell, “was filmed during our North American Brighten tour, comprised of footage from many great nights on the road. Thanks to Tyler Bates, Greg Puciato, Gil Sharone, Michael Rozon, Jason Achilles, Roger Manning Jr., and George Adrian for a fun run - looking forward to hitting Europe in a couple weeks.”

“Brighten” sees Cantrell joined a by an extensive cast of rockers, including drummers Gil Sharone and Abe Laboriel, Jr. (Paul McCartney), pedal steel master Michael Rozon, Vincent Jones on piano, Wurlitzer, and organ, Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses, Loaded) on select bass tracks, Greg Puciato (Dillinger Escape Plan) handling all of the background vocals and Joe Barresi (Tool, Queens of the Stone Age) overseeing the mixing of the record.

The project delivers eight new Cantrell originals and a cover of Elton John’s 1971 “Madman Across The Water” track, “Goodbye.”

In addition to his upcoming solo dates, Cantrell will regroup with Alice In Chains this summer for a co-headlining US tour with Breaking Benjamin – and guests Bush – with shows starting in August.
