Stone Temple Pilots Celebrate 25th Anniversary of 'Purple' With Deluxe Reissue

Hear a previously unreleased acoustic version of "Big Empty"

It wasn’t going to be easy for Stone Temple Pilots to follow up their hugely successful debut album, but the 1994 release of Purple proved the band was here to stay. The album went to #1 on the strength of finely crafted rock songs like “Interstate Love Song” and Unglued.”

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of their sophomore effort, STP is reissuing the album on September 13th in several formats. The Super Deluxe Edition will include 3 CDs and one LP. The collection features previously unreleased demos, rarities and live recordings – including cuts from KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas in 1994.
