Alice in Chains co-founder and guitarist Jerry Cantrell has shared his first single from his upcoming solo project.

Titled “Atone,” the song kicks off Cantrell’s album ‘Brighten,’ out October 29.

Cantrell says of the track, “It’s been kicking around in my head for like 20-plus years, haunting me. Sometimes it takes a while for a good idea to find its best form. Such was the case with ‘Atone’.”
