Tiny Music... Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop

Tiny Music... Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop is the third album released by Stone Temple Pilots on March 26, 1996, by Atlantic Records. The album is notable for the variety of stylistic departures it takes from the band's earlier albums. Unlike STP's first two albums, which displayed combinations of grunge and classic rock, Tiny Music... has a sound very similar to psychedelic rock bands of the 1960s, especially the Beatles.

Conflict within STP

In 1995, Scott Weiland was caught and convicted of buying crack cocaine. He was sentenced to one year's probation. Issues with drug use did not clear up after his sentence, and STP was forced to cancel most of their 1996-1997 tour for Tiny Music. Because of the tour cancellation, Tiny Music did not receive as much exposure as initially intended. The album was certified 2x platinum but was not as commercially successful as STP's first two albums.
