Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert DeLeo has shared covers of the Gordon Lightfoot songs “Affair on 8th Avenue” and “Your Love’s Return.”

The recordings, which feature vocals by musician Pete Shoulder, are being released as bonus tracks for DeLeo’s debut solo album, Lessons Learned, which dropped last October.

“Gordon Lightfoot is one of the sculptors of a musical era that I cherish and hold so dear to my heart,” DeLeo says. “I covered these two songs out of respect and relating to Gordon’s willingness to convey his vulnerability in his songs.”

You can listen to the covers now via digital outlets.

Stone Temple Pilots’ most recent album is 2020’s Perdida.
