In the seven minute video, the three bandmates are seen sitting at a mixing board listening to the song Atlanta, which came from the band’s 1999 album No. 4. The threesome share the their memories of recording the track together and find themselves immersed in the power of the music. Playing with the control panel, the group eliminates all backing vocals and music, leaving only an acoustic guitar and Weiland’s beautiful, resounding voice.

“Recently the three of us sat down together to share our memories of Scott and take a moment to reflect on the amazing times we shared,” the band said in a statement. “We put the master up of a song called Atlanta from the No. 4 record that we feel really highlights the true brilliance of Scott. We would like to share it with you.
“Together let’s honor Scott…Memories of Candles and Incense. Having the opportunity to listen to these tracks individually reveal the beauty of Scott’s lyrical and melodic gift. This is one of the many musical moments we shared together. It is in this way we would like to remember Scott.”
In 2013, Scott Weiland was fired from Stone Temple Pilots and the DeLeo brothers and Kretz continued to perform under the band’s name.
