Soundgarden will release Echo of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across the Path later this month. While the compilation, which includes unreleased songs, covers and demos taken over the span of their 26-year career, doesn’t drop until Nov. 24 the band keeps revealing previews of what to expect.
Their latest hint of what’s to come from the three-disc release is an angsty cover of Sly and the Family Stone’s “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Again).” Soundgarden’s cover was recorded during the taping of their John Peel BBC Session.
On their cover, gone is the funk of the 1969 hit. Instead, Soundgarden lays on the rock with grunge guitars and Chris Cornell’s familiar scream. While the baseline remains, it is Cornell’s guttural growl the leaves the greatest mark.
