Those sacred grunge goods are starting to make the rounds this week, as Soundgarden preps the release of their new 3-disc rarities collection. On November 24, Soundgarden will release the long-awaited 3-CD rarities collection, Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path. We caught a sample of what’s to come with a brand-new recording, “Storm,” recorded in May this year with producer Jack Endino in Seattle. Now a funked-up cover of Sly & The Family Stone’s “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)” is available for streaming, from the same release:
Featuring everything from original B-sides to unreleased tracks, instrumentals, covers and demos, the collection was curated and hand-selected by guitarist Kim Thayil. “As album sets go, this one has been fun to collect and compile over the decades,” he writes. “I personally may have referenced this project a number of times over the years, going back almost twenty of them to the mid-nineties!”
For the first time, Echo Of Miles collects and curates all these “scattered tracks across the path,” offering fans a different perspective on the 26- year history and evolution of one of alternative rock’s finest bands. The package was beautifully designed by Josh Graham and features three separate thematic discs in a clear plastic slipcase with three separate mini-jackets, each sporting its own unique art, a booklet and inserts, allowing you to mix and match your own album graphic layout.
