Previously Unreleased Deftones Song 'Smile' Featuring Chi Cheng Posted Online
Deftones have posted their previously unreleased song "Smile," from the shelved album "Eros," on YouTube to commemorate the first anniversary of the passing of the band's bassist Chi Cheng. Check out the track below.

AsĀ Blabbermouth notes, Deftones singer Chino Moreno said last year that he believes that the band should and will release "Eros," the album it recorded before Cheng was left in a semi-comatose state by a car accident in November 2008. Although Moreno was not sure if the disc would ever surface, his feelings have changed since Cheng's death. Moreno told MTV Hive: "I get asked about that record a lot. For a while, I was giving the same answer, 'No, no, no, no, no, no, no.' After Chi's passing, I went back and listened to some of the record and it was a pretty intense experience to say the least."

Moreno added, "I think it should be released, but we don't have any definite plans. There's some work to do on it. Deftones have been moving forward in a strong, positive motion, so for us to stop and reflect on something five years ago, I don't know if we're ready for that."

But he also said, "It is a special thing for us: it's the last thing Chi played on. It will see the light of day. I just don't know when."

Cheng performed on Deftones' first five albums, with his last released work being on 2006's "Saturday Night Wrist."

Bassist Sergio Vega played on "Diamond Eyes" and the most recent "Koi No Yokan."
