Song You Need To Know: Stone Temple Pilots, 'Between The Lines'

On the heels of Stone Temple Pilots' much buzzed about live appearance at South By Southwest in Austin, Texas, last week, let us now turn our attention to STP's upcoming self-titled album, prepped for a May release. Scott Weiland seems to have pulled himself together and gotten on the straight and narrow. But despite getting clean, the notorious bad boy is still infatuated with singing about the darkside.

Stone Temple Pilots' lead single is "Between The Lines," a slithery hard-rock number that recalls both early '90s Aerosmith (Weiland definitely has some Steven Tyler in his voice on this one) as well as classic STP.

With the headline-grabbing chorus, "You were always my favorite drug/Even when we used to do drugs," Weiland is still flirting with his demons. Here's hoping he keeps a safe distance and keeps making classic Pilots anthems like this one.

Stone Temple Pilots is out May 25.
