(hennemusic) Stone Temple Pilots are streaming audio of their demo of a rare Beach Boys track as a preview to the October 18 release of a 25th anniversary edition of their second album, "Purple."

As Rolling Stone notes, the obscure "She Knows Me Too Well" - written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love - was the B-side to "When I Grow Up (To Be a Man)" in 1964 and appeared on "The Beach Boys Today!" album the following year.

"That was recorded during the Purple sessions," explains bassist Robert DeLeo. "That song and 'Pretty Penny' were both done during a field trip we did at one of Brendan O'Brien's friends' houses. We recorded them in the living room of his house on a 2 inch 8-track live tape."

DeLeo brought the song to the band after being a longtime fan of the tune.

"Being the youngest in our family, I would listen to the 45s that were always hanging out by the record player, and the Beach Boys 45s were the first ones I listened to," he says. "There are certain obscure Beach Boys songs that have always been some of my favorites, including 'She Knows Me Too Well'. When I first played that one for Scott [Weiland], he really fell in love with it, so I suggested that we cover it."

Produced by Brenden O'Brien and led by the singles "Big Empty", "Vasoline" and "Interstate Love Song", "Purple" debuted at No I in the US while going on to sell more than 6 million copies in the country.

The 3CD/1LP "Purple: Super Deluxe Edition" delivers a newly-remastered version of the original studio album on both CD and vinyl, plus unreleased versions of album tracks and rarities, including demos and acoustic and live recordings. Listen to the song here.
