Stone Temple Pilots are streaming a live version of the hit track “Interstate Love Song” from their upcoming 25th anniversary edition of the band’s 1994 sophomore LP, Purple. The performance was captured at the New Haven Veterans Memorial Coliseum in New Haven, Connecticut on August 23rd, 1994.

The audio for the entire show is included on the new edition of Purple, and although it was filmed for a live home video, the footage has since gone missing.

The super deluxe 25th anniversary edition of Purple will be in stores on September 13th and includes a newly remastered version of the original studio album on both CD and vinyl, plus that live show and unreleased versions of album tracks and rarities.

Among the previously unreleased music in the new set are demos of songs like “Unglued” and “Army Ants,” early versions of album tracks such as “Meat Plow” and “Interstate Love Song”, plus acoustic recordings of tunes like “Big Empty.” The collection also features three unreleased live performances plus a demo of “She Knows Me Too Well,” a song the Beach Boysoriginally recorded in 1965.
