An unreleased version of Stone Temple Pilots‘ “Trippin’ On A Hole In A Paper Heart” is now available online. This version is included on the band’s upcoming 25th anniversary edition their multi-platinum 1996 album Tiny Music… Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop, which will be released on July 23rd.
Drummer Eric Kretz told Stereogum, “So usually we would have one or two songs per album where we would record the music and not have any vocal ideas to accompany us. With this Early version of ‘Trippin‘, Scott had the rhythm tracks to work off of and this was his first day at singing the song. I really enjoy hearing him trying to work out the tongue twisting verse lyrics that are such a great counter rhythm to the music in the verses.”
