‘SHANGRI-LA”S IN OUR MIDST

'Shangri-La Dee Da' is out in June...

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS have announced details of their fifth studio album, ‘SHANGRI-LA DEE DA’.

Out on June 19, the album is produced by STP‘s regular producer Brendan O’Brien.

The band’s official website, www.stonetemplepilots.com, promises an album with, “an equal balance of hard rockers, mid-tempo pop songs and ballads, a few of which have Latin influences”. Songs expected to feature on the album are ‘Hollywood Bitch’, ‘Days Of The Week’, ‘About A Fool’ and ‘Bipolar Bear’.

As NME.COM reported earlier in the year, the band was subject to documentary-makers Rebecca and Chapman Baehler, whose behind-the-scenes film of the band and their recording process will be released later in 2001.

‘Shangri-La Dee Da’ is the follow-up to 1999’s ‘No. 4’, which peaked at Number Six on the Billboard 200.
