Soundgarden have remixed their ‘Ultramega OK’ song, ‘Flower’
Soundgarden are gearing up to reissue their 1988 debut album, “Ultramega OK,” and that means putting together some special goodies for the release. Chris Cornell and company have posted a remixed version of their song “Flower,” which will arrive on the upcoming. The fresh version of ‘Flower” is streaming now via YouTube.
The “Ultramega OK” reissue will drop on March 10. The set will feature 19 tracks, including a remixed version of the original album and “early versions” of six tracks.
The upcoming “Ultramega OK” reissue is something of a longtime wish fulfilled for the Soundgarden guys. When the album first dropped in the late-‘80s, the band wasn’t super happy with the final mix and had it on their to-do list to remix it for future pressings. That never happened, though, largely because the band became so popular with following releases that they didn’t have the time to do a remix. Now, Soundgarden have picked the remix project up again after securing the original “Ultramega OK” multi-track tapes.
In other news, Soundgarden are currently writing and recording their upcoming, seventh studio album. The set will mark their follow-up to 2012’s “King Animal,” which was the first album of original music released from the guys after they reformed as a band. Soundgarden will also hit the festival circuit this spring with appearances at Rock on the Range, Rocklahoma and Carolina Rebellion.
