Between his partnership with former Screaming Trees singer Mark Lanegan as the Gutter Twins and his duties with the Twilight Singers, alt-rock mainstay Greg Dulli has kept himself busy since the Afghan Whigs disbanded in 2001. One more of his musical activities: Numerous solo shows, one of which -- an October 2007 gig in Seattle -- will be released digitally October 28 as Live at Triple Door, an aptly titled live album sampling the singer-songwriter's storied body of work.

Can't wait to hear Dulli's first live solo release?Never fear -- we here at SPIN.com have an exclusive stream of the track "Candy Cane Crawl" for your listening pleasure. Originally featured on the Twilight Singers' 2006 record, Powder Burns, this stripped-down live version of the tune is noticeably darker than its studio counterpart, as stringed accompaniment, and Dulli's aching vocals, create a gorgeously haunting texture.
