On Oct. 29, Jerry Cantrell, guitarist/vocalist/lyricist for Alice in Chains, will release his third solo album, Brighten. Announced in recent weeks, the record has been previewed with a few songs, the most recent being the title track.

Shared on Friday, the song pairs a steady rhythm with Cantrell’s dynamic vocals, and its high-energy video showcases Cantrell and his backing band (more on that in a bit):

Seen in the video alongside Cantrell are some of the musicians who also accompanied him in the studio:

Vocals/Guitar: Greg Puciato
Bass: Tyler Bates
Drums: Abe Laboriel Jr. (Paul McCartney’s drummer since 2001)
Piano: Vincent Jones

“I’ve been in the band for almost 34 years now,” said Cantrell in a statement about finding the energy for a new solo record, his fist since 2002’s Degradation Trip. “It’s always my first and foremost commitment, but it’s nice to explore different things and add another chapter to a growing body of work. After the last AIC tour wrapped, I geared my mind towards the possibility of making another record of my own.”
