Soundgarden bassist Ben Shepherd has officially confirmed August 27 as the release date of his debut solo record "In Deep Owl."
Featuring Soundgarden stickman Matt Cameron and former Pearl Jam drummer Matt Chamberlain, the record was written during the last four years, Spin reports.
The bassist also premiered the record's first single "Barron Robber" via SoundCloud and unveiled the single cover on his official Facebook page. You can check them both out below.
With a bit more of a raw sound, the song clocks in at just under three minutes with an upbeat mid-tempo theme stretching throughout its entire length. With a few interesting tricks on both the bass and guitar, Shepherd keeps the listener well entertained during the whole song, easily making it a good listen. The limited edition 12" vinyl edition of the upcoming album is currently available for pre-order. You can check out more details, as well as the track's lyrics here.
The latest Soundgarden release, "King Animal," dropped during November 2012 via Vertigo Records as the sixth studio effort from the Seattle four-piece. With 83,000 units sold in the US within the first week, it debuted at No.5 on the Billboard 200 chart.
