Ahead of the reissue of their debut album, Core, the Stone Temple Pilots have shared a previously unreleased track: the MTV Unplugged version of their classic jam “Wicked Garden.”

The song will be featured on the super deluxe version of the Core reissue, along with several others from the Unplugged session. According to an interview with Billboard, bassist Robert DeLeo was so nervous during the intimate performance that he’s seen visibly shaking during his vocal part on “Creep.”

Nerves aside, the stripped-down “Wicked Garden” below is incredible.

The 25th anniversary Core reissues are expected to be released September 29.
