|Stone Temple Pilots embraced experimentation and open-mindedness to record the band’s third album, 1996’s Tiny Music… Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop. Released on March 26, 1996, the album is a pitch-perfect amalgamation of the band members’ musical personalities, yielding three #1 hits – “Big Bang Baby,” “Lady Picture Show,” and “Trippin’ On A Hole In A Paper Heart.” Today, on the eve of the album’s 25th anniversary, Rhino announces the upcoming release of a newly remastered version of Tiny Music… expanded with unreleased studio and live recordings. TINY MUSIC… SONGS FROM THE VATICAN GIFT SHOP: SUPER DELUXE EDITION will be available on July 23 for $79.98. The 3-CD/1-LP set includes a newly remastered version of the original studio album on both CD and vinyl, plus unreleased early versions, instrumentals and alternate takes along with a complete concert recording from 1997. On the same day, the music will be made available both digitally as a 2-CD Deluxe Edition. The remastered original album will also be available as a single CD. The previously unreleased “Alternate Version” of “Big Bang Baby” is out today on all digital download and streaming services.|
|A limited edition TINY MUSIC… bundle is now available to pre-order at www.stonetemplepilots.com which includes a copy of the Super Deluxe Edition along with a bonus 7-inch vinyl single of “Big Bang Baby” that replicates the artwork of the original CD promo single from 1997.
