STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer Scott Weiland is halfway through completing his second solo album with producer Josh Abraham (STAIND, ORGY, CRAZY TOWN). Abraham describes the four completed tracks, recorded in late August at his Los Angeles studio, as more "artsy" than Weiland's efforts with STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, but not as far out as the singer's experimental first set.
"What I do is much more commercial than what Scott would ever do," Abraham told Rolling Stone. "But I think the combination could definitely be on the radio. It doesn't sound anything like STP, but it's definitely his vision of what he wanted to do."
Among the tracks set to appear on the as-yet-untitled effort are "Drop That Baby", "If Only I Could Fly", and "Big Black Monster". A late summer release is expected.
