Soundgarden premiere unreleased track “Kristi” — listen

on November 20, 2014, 10:55am

On November 24th, Soundgarden will release Echo of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across the Path, a collection of unreleased songs, instrumentals, covers, and assorted demos taken from throughout their 26-year career. Already the band has shared a few previews of the three-disc, 50-track compilation: “Storm”, a song dating back to 1989 that the band re-recorded alongside producer Jack Endino; a cover of Sly and the Family Stone’s “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)”; and the roaring instrumental “Twin Tower”.

Today, the grunge gods have broken off yet another unreleased track in the form of “Kristi”. Recorded during the sessions for 1996’s Down On The Upside, the morose and monstrous rock anthem has only ever been played live once, during the band’s set at Reading Festival 1995. Given its similar vibe and overall aesthetic to the rest of Down, and that it’s reportedly drummer Matt Cameron’s favorite track, you’ve got to wonder why it was left on the cutting room floor in the first place. Listen in below (via Stereogum).

Pre-orders for Echo of Miles are ongoing. Check out the entire tracklist below.
