New Stone Temple Pilots singer Jeff Gutt covered a Chris Cornell classic, and it has just resurfaced. Gutt covered Audioslave’s “Shadow On The Sun,” and it is beautiful. Listen below!

New Stone Temple Pilots singer Jeff Gutt discussed his connection to Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell in a new SiriusXM interview with Eddie Trunk. Alternative Nation transcribed Gutt’s comments.

“I was actually in a band called Dry Cell, which was on Warner Brothers around the same time as Linkin Park. That was how I knew Chester, that’s when I first met him, in 2001 when they first came out, and we were signed by the same guy.”

He later discussed singing “Hunger Strike.”

“I never wanted to a singer. I always wanted to be the guy on the side, I never wanted to have the spotlight on me. It always made me a little uncomfortable. But then I realized that I had this natural gift of- I think it’s more listening and being able to hear if you’re in pitch or not, it’s more of your ear than your throat, but I had that ability.

I was always the guy showing the singer which to sing, so at one point, strangely enough the first time I put the guitar down, and just sang and held the microphone in front of people, it was Hunger Strike. It’s crazy, because Chester and Chris Cornell had that version. That was the first time.”

    I listened to both the Audioslave version of the song and Jeff Gutt’s version of the song.

    Hands down, the Audioslave version kicks the ass of Jeff’s version.

      Chris Cornell wrote the song. This other guy butchered it. I would hope he will never ever ever try to sing a Chris Cornell song again. Ever

        Guess what?

        I think there is an article on here where this guy is singing “Even Flow”.

        I’m not even going to click on that article.

  • It’s a nice try but sounds whiny and weak. STP made a good choice but let’s wait and see what we get.

    • Tyrone Blackman

      I think Borja would have been better

  • The Dude

    Sorta reminds me of Puddle of Mudds front man. Needless to say I’m excited to hear the new STP album.

    • Fly Mule

      I’m far from excited. Why? Rock and roll is dead my friend. Over…done…dead and buried. There will never be talent like that of the last 50-60 years. Just send a donation to your favorite charity in honor of rick and roll’s death

  • Jay

    Actually. This guy sings through his nose and he sucks. He dresses up like famous people and tries to act like them, all the while unbeknownst to him failing horribly. Good luck STP you are now a crappy cover band.

  • Joe Procopio

    Out of key equals incredible? Who’s paying who to report this… Horrible.

  • Fly Mule

    Weak…totally weak. That guy couldn’t come close to the octaves that Cornell hit in that song. Not only that…if you can’t sing it, just don’t. There will never be another voice like his and it’s gone. It’s sad and it sucks. So to all you wannabe next big thing….don’t walk in shadows that you have no chance of filling. That sucked. I turned it off after the first bridge and almost puked. Just stop it

      I actually listened to all of it.

      And I was shaking my head at parts of it because it sounded horrible to me.

  • Fly Mule

    Additionally….what the hell is Stone Temple Pilots without Scott Wileand? People need to just accept Rock is dead and move on. Maybe get a hobby? Throw snowballs at cars? Anything because another artist that can top anything of the past 50-60 years isn’t alive presently nor will be born anytime soon
