The Pretty Reckless Enlist Soundgarden Members for "Only Love Can Save Me Now"
Watch Matt Cameron and Kim Thayil in the new music video
Published Jun 09, 2021Taylor Momsen's the Pretty Reckless have released a new music video for their latest single "Only Love Can Save Me Now." And the song finds the band joining forces with Soundgarden's Matt Cameron and Kim Thayil, who also make an appearance in the clip.
"The song was born out of tragedy and brought to life by two of my favourite musicians of all time — Matt Cameron and Kim Thayil," Momsen explained in a statement. "Hearing them play it is simply surreal."
She continued: "This song represents getting through the worst time in my life, and yet, is one of my proudest achievements. It means that there is hope, and that life has to go on, and most importantly, is worth living."
Thayil added: "'Only Love Can Save Me Now' has elements of classic Soundgarden and the riff would probably be at home on Louder Than Love. These are great guitar parts that Ben came up with. They lay down a heavy foundation that allows the entire song to open up with Taylor's powerful and haunting vocals."
The track appears on the band's latest album, Death by Rock and Roll, which arrived back in February through Fearless Records.
