Temple of the Dog performed “Missing,” a previously unheard song written by Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell, at the Philadelphia stop of their reunion tour Saturday.

Cornell is a member of the supergroup, along with Pearl Jam members Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament, Mike McCready, and Matt Cameron (who also drummed for Soundgarden). An audience member captured footage of the performance (shown above) and posted it online. 

“This was part of a group of songs that I wrote that were based on some song titles that Jeff came up with when he’s working on some set decoration,” Cornell told the crowd. “One of those song, the title was ‘Seasons,’ one of them was ‘Spoonman,’ and this one called ‘Missing.'”

The band are currently reuniting for a tour commemorating the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut, which came out in 1991. Their first show kicked off in Philadelphia on Friday night, and they posted a snapshot from the concert on Twitter. 

 

Cornell said in a statement, “We wanted to do the one thing we never got to do: Play shows and see what it feels like to be the band that we walked away from 25 years ago.”
