STONE TEMPLE PILOTS have made a film documenting the recording of their forthcoming album.
The band have spent the majority of 2001 in their LA house studio, working on the songs which will comprise their fifth studio album.
The project, made with the cooperation of the band, has followed the entire recording process, from the demoing of songs through to the final recording process.
Speaking to www.sonicnet.com, the film’s director Chapman Baehler said the idea was to make the project “like a modern-day ‘Let It Be'”.
He continued: “It’s got a lot of really beautiful, moody shots – these art shots with either Dean [DeLeo] or Robert [DeLeo] playing an old organ in a really beautiful space, to Dean and Scott [Weiland] playing acoustic, to some totally awesome rock-out live stuff in the main recording space.”
There are also plans to produce a book covering the recording of the album, which is due for release later in the year. The band are currently mixing the as-yet-untitled album in Atlanta.
