Jerry Cantrell of Alice in Chains will release his first solo album in 19 years, Brighten, on October 29th.
You can watch the first single and video, "Atone," on YouTube now.
Duff McKagan of Guns n' Roses is among the musicians that appear on the album. And Cantrell closes it with a cover of Elton John's "Goodbye." Cantrell tells Rolling Stone, "Madman Across the Water" is one of my favorite records of all time. Out of respect to Elton, I wouldn’t include it unless he said it was OK. He’d played piano on ‘Black Gives Way to Blue,’ which I wrote for Layne[Stanley], so I reached out to Elton, he listened to it, and told me ‘You should absolutely use it.’ I got the signoff by the man himself. I couldn’t think of a better way to close the record!"
