Stone Temple Pilots will release their first all-acoustic album, titled Perdida, on February 7th, 2020 and the band intends to add extra musicians and strings to its live lineup when STP tours in support of the disc early next year.

Bassist Robert DeLeo confirmed the expansion of the live instrumentation on the Talkin' Rock With Meltdown podcast, explaining, "I think it will really be cool to see this, live. We're going to be adding a couple of other musicians and adding some strings and kind of making it a nice evening."

The band used a number of offbeat instruments on the Perdida album as well, and DeLeo told us how they determined what to use: "It was just a matter of less is more, and letting that instrument, and all the instruments, kind of speak on their own. And that's really what the intention was -- to get the song to be as clear and as beautiful as possible with the accents of those instruments."

Among the varied instruments that appear on Perdida are flute, alto saxophone, guitarrón, viola, cello and vintage keyboards.

STP will kick off the tour behind Perdida on February 5th in Vancouver. The first single is out now and called "Fare Thee Well."
