Hard-rocking denizens of the internet have been caught up in a ceaseless game of cat and mouse since Soundgarden’s new single “Been Away Too Long” leaked yesterday. The song is the first the public has heard of the band’s forthcoming November 13 album, King Animal, which finds the band back in the studio after a 16-year gap kicked off by 1996’s Down On the Upside. After hitting blogs and news sites with takedown notices yesterday, Republic Records has released a proper stream of the slippery new single, which proves that yes, Soundgarden have indeed “Been Away Too Long.” Get under something solid and hit play on this furious earth-shaker.
