Soundgarden Bass Player Ben Shepherd Releases New Song 'Keystone'


Ben Shepherd, bass player for Soundgarden, has released "Keystone," the latest cut from his upcoming solo debut album, In Deep Owl.

"Keystone" is the third track Shepherd has streamed from the forthcoming LP, following "Collide" and "Baron Robber."

According to Spin magazine, the latest single is a departure from the previously released cuts:

"[T]he latest from [Shepherd] is a plodding, bari sax-enhanced dirge — the perfect theme song for a drifter, with Shepherd's vocals showing getting gruff over the grunged-up guitar-play.

All the vocals and instruments on the LP, aside from those played by guest musicians, were played by Shepherd. AntiMusic.com previously reported that the record is a collection of songs recorded in the industrial neighborhoods of Georgetown and Interbay in Seattle, Washington.

In Deep Owl, featuring guest appearances from former Pearl Jam drummer Matt Chamberlain and Shepherd's Soundgarden band mate and drummer Matt Cameron, hits August 27.
