Stone Temple Pilots’ Scott Weiland Takes Us to His ‘Winter Wonderland’ in New Holiday Video

Scott Weiland The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
Rhino

Those cool alt rockers are just like us!

Doubt it? Look at the retro video take on ‘Winter Wonderland’ that Stone Temple Pilots‘ front man Scott Weiland just released.

The singer performs a very traditional version of the much-loved classic, which was originally made famous by the rock-superstar-of-his-day Bing Crosby.

The song is one of the holiday classics Weiland recorded for his recent album ‘The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.’

“I’ve been listening to these songs my entire life,” Weiland told Rolling Stone. “It was a great honor to do this album.”

Weiland got the idea to record a record like this after reflecting on the joy holidays have brought him, especially as a child.

Even though the classic songs have been recorded by many artists throughout the years, Weiland said he was anxious to also be a  part of the holiday experience for others.

Weiland’s version of ‘Winter Wonderland’ is one of many songs on ‘The Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ recorded in classic style, with an orchestra backing him. Yet, he does mix up the format for some of the other songs.

“We wanted to do a reggae-ish version of ‘Silent Night, And there’s a sort of swigging version of ‘What Child Is This?’ and we have a bossa nova, ’60′s kitschy version of one of the songs. It all worked out quite amazing.”
