3rd Secret – the grunge supergroup featuring members of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden – have come together to form a new band called 3rd Secret, who have surprise-released a full-length debut album.

The band was formed by Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil and Matt Cameron, drummer for both Pearl Jam and Soundgarden. Additional members include Jon ‘Bubba’ Dupree of Void, Jillian Raye of Novoselic’s project Giants In The Trees and Jennifer Johnson.

Following the release of a surprise debut album last week (April 11), the band have shared a video for ‘I Choose Me’, shot at Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture.

Check out the video below.

The band’s 11-track self-titled record honours the band’s grunge roots while expanding outwards into indie-rock, indie-folk and beyond. It’s available to digitally buy and download as well as stream on Spotify and YouTube. There is no current news on a physical release.

Discussing their formation and debut album on their official website, the band wrote: “At one time, there was an idea for three separate albums by individuals to include various contributions from the musicians [in the band].

“Anything seemed possible and attitudes were positive. In late 2021, feeling like too much time had passed, or just plain impatient, Krist and Jillian proposed 3rd Secret — combining material recorded in Seattle and on the farm. And this is how we got to this record with Jillian and Krist on the cover.

“Today we’re all making a splash as a “supergroup”. 3rd Secret is perhaps a prequel to another release from this super group of musicians. There will not be a 4th Secret, rather, a new name for another round of material from these players and singers. It is about music first and foremost.

“The plan is to get together at the end of summer and finish another record. There are about half of an album of songs already existing which need to be recorded properly. The level of inspiration has been so high, we are looking forward to working together again. There are no plans for any live performances at this time. Thanks for all of the interest in the work. We are happy 3rd Secret is out!”
