Soundgarden Teases King Animal Cut “Worse Dreams”

Last week, we got confirmation that Soundgarden were preparing a new studio album — their first in 16 years — due for release on 11/13. Today, we’ve got an album title and a taste of new music. The band’s sixth full-length, their first since 1996’s Down On The Upside, will be called King Animal. They’re teasing a song called “Worse Dreams,” which will (I guess?) be the first single. Based on the 36 seconds of music we can actually hear, I’d say it’s likely the poppiest Soundgarden song since “My Wave.” Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much from this album, but hearing this, I’m really intrigued. Check it out.
