Chris Cornell Announces New Solo Album Higher Truth

Over the past few years, Chris Cornell has been busy with the Soundgarden reunion but, earlier this year, he let slip that he was hard at work on a fourth studio album. His last solo record was 2009’s misguided Timbaland-produced Scream. Today, he’s confirmed that the new album will come out in the fall, and that it will be called Higher Truth. The confirmation came paired with a press release announcing a series of shows in Australia and New Zealand that are scheduled for the fall, where he’ll be playing old hits and new songs from Higher Truth in an “unplugged, up-close, and personal setting.” Blabbermouth reports that it will be released in September, but the press release itself is a little more vague. Either way, it’s coming soon.
