As the release date for Stone Temple Pilots' 25th Anniversary Purple reissue creeps closer, the band continues to tease what we can expect from the super deluxe edition of its sophomore album. Aside from alternate versions of some of their most iconic songs, the three-disc set also features a cover of Beach Boys' deep cut "She Knows Me Too Well," which was the B-side to “When I Grow Up (To Be a Man)” in 1964.

STP shared a snippet of the cover on Instagram. "During the Purple sessions Robert brought up the idea of covering 'She Knows Me Too Well' by The Beach Boys. Scott [Weiland] was especially thrilled. Here is an early unfinished version of it," the band wrote alongside the teaser. "This song is part of the forthcoming 25th anniversary super deluxe edition of PURPLE, available October 18."
