The Pretty Reckless released their fourth studio album, Death By Rock And Roll, today (February 12), and with it comes the unveiling of “Only Love Can Save Me Now” which features Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil and Matt Cameron.
The track is the second major collaboration on the album, with the other being 'And So It Went. Cameron has long been attached to the new TPR album dating back to November 2019 when Taylor Momsen shared a photo with the Soundgarden/Pearl Jam drummer to Instagram with the caption, “Wait til you hear this…#tpr4 the incomparable @themattcameron #LondonBridgeStudios #Seattle.”
The Pretty Reckless have a strong tie to Soundgarden. In 2017, they supported the iconic Seattle band on tour which was sadly the band’s last with singer Chris Cornell. It’s been a hard few years, but Taylor Momsen told Preston & Steve that this album was instrumental in the group’s healing process, and that working with Thayil and Cameron on this song was an incredible experience.
Death By Rock And Roll is available on all major streaming platforms which physical copies, including special edition vinyl and album merch, available at DeathByRockAndRoll.com.
