Soundgarden bassist Ben Shepherd is set to release a solo album titled In Deep Owl on Aug. 27.
Originally slated to consist of only vocals and acoustic guitar, things changed when Shepherd added Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron and former Pearl Jam drummer Matt Chamberlain. That added percussion gives the album a little more oomph, and perhaps adds even more flavor from his home-base of Seattle.
To give fans a taste of the new music, Shepherd has released two tracks – “Collide” and “Baron Robber.”
Listen to both tracks below and visit Shepherd’s official Facebook page for more information.
