Jerry Cantrell premiere a visualizer video for the third single »Siren Song« taken from his upcoming solo album »Brighten«

Alice In Chains guitarist and vocalist Jerry Cantrell premiere a visualizer video for the brand new single »Siren Song« taken from his upcoming solo album, »Brighten«, out on October 29th, 2021.

»Siren Song« is the third single from the upcoming album, following the moody, acoustic-driven »Atone« and the album’s sludgy title track.

The new single is available now on all digital streaming platforms.

Shortly after his December 2019 LA shows, Jerry Cantrell entered the studio to begin work on »Brighten«. The album was produced by Cantrell, film composer Tyler Bates, and co-produced by engineer Paul Figueroa, while mixing was handeled by Joe Barresi (Tool, Queens Of The Stone Age).

“It was like an old school seventies record where a multitude of musicians played so it’s not a set band. I got to make music with a bunch of people I never had before, along with friends like Duff, Tyler & Gil who I’ve worked with previously. I’ve always been a fan of bands that were heavy on harmony; I’ve been lucky enough to have that relationship with Layne Staley and now William DuVall. Greg and I worked together in a similar fashion and blended nicely. We were creating and changing this thing all the way up until the end. It took way longer than I wanted it to, but it became an even better record. This album offers cleaner glimpses of what I grew up on, listened to, and am still inspired by today. I was raised by two country fans, so I think you can hear that energy in there as well. This album has prominent roles for keys, strings, and pedal steel, which I haven’t incorporated in such a heavy fashion before.” – Jerry Cantrell
