Let Jerry Cantrell “Brighten” Your Day With His New Single

  • Axl Rosenberg

There’s not much you can say about Jerry Cantrell’s solo music that you can’t say about Alice in Chains. Which is neither surprising nor disappointing, but does make a music blogger’s job especially difficult. Like, you’ve heard Alice in Chains? You’re cool with the somewhat-more-laid-back vibe of “Check My Brain” (as opposed to “Them Bones” or “Put You Down” or whatever)? Then you know what Cantrell’s latest solo single, “Brighten,” is gonna sound like: fairly simple, straightforward, hooky rock, all filtered through a rain cloud. No misguided Timbaland collaborations for this ol’ grunge star.

Enjoy “Brighten” below. The song is the title track from Cantrell’s new album, which comes out October 29. Listen to the first single, “Atone,” here, and pre-order the album here.
