Stone Temple Pilots have released a previously unheard song called “Only Dying,” a track that the band recorded in demo form early in its career but never officially issued. The band had considered contributing the tune to the soundtrack for the 1994 film The Crow, but decided it would be in poor taste to include it after the film’s star, Brandon Lee, was accidentally shot dead on set during filming. The tune was shelved for more than two decades before STP dusted it off for inclusion on the 25th anniversary edition of the bands debut album, Core, which will come out on September 29th. Bassist Robert DeLeo told Rolling Stone about the track, “That song was a little bit of a different direction for us. It was based more off jazz-type chordings. As a songwriter, I wanted to spark people into different directions.” The Super Deluxe Edition includes nine demos, with four dating between 1987 and 1990 when the band was known as Mighty Joe Young. One of those is “Only Dying.”
