Modern rock veterans Stone Temple Pilots have recorded a studio version of the Beatles' "Revolution" and will donate proceeds from its Nov. 27 release as a single to the Twin Towers Fund, which is providing relief to families affected by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. STP first performed the track at TNT's John Lennon tribute concert earlier this month.

The single will be enhanced with footage of the recording session, which took place in New York a few days after the Lennon concert. The track goes to U.S. rock radio outlets this week, and a video of STP's performance at the Lennon concert is being serviced to MTV, MTV2, and VH1.

Stone Temple Pilots are currently on the road in North America as part of the Family Values tour, which hits Atlanta tonight (Oct. 31) and wraps Nov. 17 in Tacoma, Wash. The group's latest Atlantic album, "Shangri-La Dee Da," debuted at No. 9 on The Billboard 200 in July.
