Soundgarden are streaming the demo version of track ‘Black Hole Sun’ from their Superunknown album.
The song is streaming ahead of the deluxe re-issue of Superunknown this summer – it’s 20th anniversary.
Soundgarden will play Barclaycard British Summer Time in London’s Hyde Park on July 4, alongside Black Sabbath, Wolfmother, Faith No More, Motörhead, Soulfly, Gallows and Rise To Remain. They will then join Nine Inch Nails on a joint US tour, heading out on 23 dates in July and August. The tour begins in Las Vegas on July 19th, ending at the Hollywood Bowl on August 25th. Sacramento hip-hop group, Death Grips, will provide support for the two bands on all but two of the dates.
Soundgarden and Nine Inch Nails both released key albums on the same date in 1994. Superunknown was Soundgarden’s fourth album, whilst Nine Inch Nails released sophomore LP The Downward Spiral on the same day. Both have since gone on to become highly regarded key works in the two bands’ careers.
