The title alone points to “Black Rain” as Soundgarden’s comeback single (See also: “Black Hole Sun,” “Fell On Black Days”). The track leaked over the weekend following the band’s pre-Lolla warm-up show at Chicago’s Vic Theatre (they headlined the fest last night), but it was due shortly anyway. Listen for “Black Rain” on your local alt rock radio station tomorrow. It’ll also appear on Soundgarden’s upcoming greatest hits compilation, Telephantasm, as well as Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock. It isn’t new material, though. The band recorded “Black Rain” during the sessions for 1991’s Badmotorfinger. Keep that in mind as you listen to the stream:
Telephantasm is out 9/28 via A&M.
