CHRIS CORNELL Talks Inspiration For New Solo Album ‘Higher Truth’

August 20, 2015

Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell’s new single, “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart” is all over radio (in fact, the most added song this week at the active rock, mainstream rock and adult alternative formats). The song is off Cornell’s fourth solo studio album, “Higher Truth”, out September 18.


Cornell said the record was inspired by the solo acoustic tours he’s done over the past few years. “It has been such a rewarding thing to do that I wanted to write an album of new material that essentially supported that and make it a living thing, as opposed to it being nostalgia, you know, and just going out and playing songs from yesterday.”

The new disc follows up Cornell’s last solo studio effort, 2009’s “Scream”.

Cornell starts a tour in support of “Higher Truth” on September 18 in San Diego, winding down on November 4 in Phoenix.
