Alice in Chains surprises fans with its new song "The One You Know." The track will be featured in the rock band's forthcoming sixth LP.
The almost five-minute music video for "The One You Know" was also released on Friday, May 4. It opens with band members Jerry Cantrell and William DuVall playing their respective instruments. A few seconds after playing grungy, dissonant riffs, Cantrell started singing some lines to the song.
Jerry Cantrell Teases New Album
Cantrell, who serves as the guitarist of Alice in Chains, previously talked about the band's album. He said that the compilation is something that they have not done in the past.
"There's some really heavy s***, some really ugly stuff, some real beautiful stuff, some weird trippy s***. It's good," said Cantrell.
Mike Inez Talks About Working In The Studio
Last year, Mike Inez, the bassist for Alice in Chains, dished on what it has been like working on the album thus far. He said that spending 24 hours in the studio is not fun. However, they consider what they do a great job.
"But we try to make that our clubhouse and separate that from the business, kind of. So we're still in that... playing the sandbox, kind of, for this new record anyways. We're still getting together in the same city, and plugging in the same room," said Inez.
The title of the upcoming album has not yet been announced, but it will serve as Alice in Chain's first record with BGM. The members of the band collaborated with Nick Raskulinecz, a record producer, for the third time in a row following 2013's The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here and 2009's Black Give Way to Blue.
Alice in Chains has not yet announced the official release date of its LP, but it is reportedly due sometime this summer. The tracklist has not yet been released either.
