On June 7, 1994 Stone Temple Pilots released their sophomore album, Purple. And now, 25 years later, the band has completely transcended its "grunge" stereotype and is thought of as one of the best rock bands. Period.

To celebrate their first chart-topping album, STP is reissuing Purple as three-disc super deluxe edition complete with never-before heard versions of the record's most beloved songs. The band announced the anniversary project by sharing one of those previously unreleased tracks: an acoustic version of "Big Empty."

Purple: Super Deluxe Edition is slated for a September 13 release and is available for pre-order. Listen to the acoustic version of "Big Empty" and check out the full track list below.
