Robert DeLeo On Working With Dean For A New Stone Temple Pilots Album
Rumors regarding a possible new project by Stone Temple Pilots should be put to rest for the immediate future, as the brothers don’t seem to have anything up their sleeves. The bassist and songwriter Robert DeLeo, who has been working on his material, sat down with SiriusXM’s ‘Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk’ to share where his mind is at regarding a future Stone Temple Pilots album with his brother Dean DeLeo.
“Not yet,” said the bassist about a new STP album before explaining his busy schedule surrounding his forthcoming solo album. “I’m so busy on my debut solo record right now, and it’s been a journey for me to try to tackle this all alone, with playing and everything and with the people I got together. This is the beginning of the promo. The record was released a couple of weeks ago, so I’m in the middle of it right now.”
He continued, “But it’s in the back of my mind, and I’ve got some ideas coming together. So we’ll see where that goes.” Even though Robert has ideas for an STP project, he is currently focused on promoting his solo works before taking the steps with his brother to create the next thing for the band.
Robert DeLeo released his first solo work ‘Lessons Learned’ on October 21. The bassist has also tried to implement his other instrument skills in his latest work to create more of an acoustic sound than a hard rock one, which his fans would have expected from the musician. The LP’s tracks also feature several guest artists, such as the album’s first single, ‘Love Is Not Made Of Gold,’ which includes vocalist Jimmy Gnecco.
