Scott Weiland released a new track called “Back to the City” in October for free via a ‘Scott Weiland’ app. You can listen below, and hear a high quality version in the app. The track was recorded prior to Jeremy Brown’s March 2015 death, and the app was actually dedicated to Brown. “Back to the City” ended up being the last new release of new music during Weiland’s lifetime, as the legendary Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver frontman passed away on Thursday night.

The song is features guitar sounds that are reminiscent of Velvet Revolver and Queens of the Stone Age. ‘Can’t you stay/here with me/you’re the woman that makes me feel free/I want you/you want me/don’t break my heart if you want me to be.’ He sings in the infectious chorus: ‘Movin on/goin’ back to the city.’ He also sings, ‘On my way back to you/always do what you want me to do/looking round/close to you/your beating heart is the one that is true.’ The lyrics are very romantic, much like much of Blaster, with Weiland’s wife Jamie serving as his muse.

On my way, back to you
Always Do what you want me to do
Looking ’round, close to you
Your beating heart is the one that is true

All the way I’m going back to my baby
I got a vision that she’s comeback to me
So it’s true

Can’t you stay, here with me
You’re the woman that makes me feel free
I want you, you want me
Don’t break my heart if you want it to be

Running on, running on, running on
Going Back to the City

Looking up, looking down, all around
You’re the one that I needed

On my way, back to you
Always do what you want me to do
Looking ’round, close to you
Your beating heart is the one that is true

Moving on, moving on, moving on
Going Back to the City

Looking up, looking down, all around
You’re the one that I needed

You can’t see that we are sheltered by the
Night
You and me we can be the best we’ve ever
Tried

Moving on, moving on, moving on
Going Back to the City

Looking up, looking down, all around
You’re the one that I needed
