Mike Foley has posted on Facebook regarding late Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland’s last unreleased music with the Wondergirls. The Wondergirls was a short lived supergroup in 1999.

“Yes a year later I’m still pushing to get the original recordings from this album remixed & released. I just made some Instagram clips of my own with the song because I don’t own this video yet. While Scott is gone, both Ash Hamilton & Jay Gordon are for the release. It’s far more complicated than it has to be. It seems the hardest part is getting the person in possession of the reels to let us do what should’ve been done long ago. But she’s not interested in Scott’s legacy. You would think that her love of his money would be inspiration enough but a year later, & that’s since just my involvement in it, this person has yet to respond to something, when completed, would benefit everyone, including her & more importantly his children. I’ll leave it at that. Enjoy!”

Foley also wrote about the Wondergirls in November on Instagram:

“I accidentally discovered Wondergirls a year ago. I spoke to Jay in January at the Whisky about it & he sent me to Ashley, who was excited at the idea of converting the original reels directly to mp3 (no CD) remix & update the tracks.

Jay said he’d produce & we’d release this treasure w/proceeds going to Scott’s kids, but Mary has the reels & I don’t know what will happen now, Ash had his daughter a few months ago & we haven’t spoken of it in months. I haven’t given up. Ash used Wondergirls for Iron Man 3 in 2013 & Jay produced that. I still hope we’ll eventually release what may be the only music left from Scott no one has heard.”

It’s important to note that Mary Weiland has not made any statements regarding unreleased Wondergirls music, so this is just coming from Foley, Hamilton, and Gordon’s perspective.

The Wondergirls featured a huge lineup with members of massive bands including Stone Temple Pilots, Queens of the Stone Age, Sugar Ray, Jane’s Addiction, Thirty Seconds to Mars, and The Cult.
