Via Spin comes a new Soundgarden video, talking about (and playing parts of) a new song called Bones Of Birds:
This follows a clip we missed from last week, giving the same treatment to By Crooked Steps:
And we’ve heard all of Been Away Too Long, but there’s commentary for that song as well:
Bones Of Birds is a dark song, sounding a bit like haunting dirge-rock in the clips, which Chris says was inspired by being a father, having children, and being worried about them “learning about the real world,” experiencing loss, and losing their innocence. By Crooked Steps is a more straightforward rock jam, that Matt says has that “classic Soundgarden vibe.”
The semi-agonizing wait for King Animal ends on November 13th. None of these teases have managed to blow us away just yet, but these are the same guys that recorded Badmotorfinger last we checked.
