Chris Cornell says new Soundgarden album in the works

Posted by on August 25, 2015

Guitarist Kim Thayil hinted at what would be Soundgarden’s seventh album earlier this year, and recently vocalist Chris Cornell (who is promoting a new solo album, Higher Truth) Cornell told Rolling Stone that a new Soundgarden is indeed in the works.

Said Cornell:

“We’re already working on new material for an album. And then I’ve got several other irons in the fire and things going that I won’t mention now. There’s a lot of things coming in addition to Higher Truth, as well as a new Soundgarden album.”

Cornell is plenty busy, already in the midst of a solo acoustic tour promoting Higher Truth into early November, but it’s good to hear time is being made for a new Soundgarden studio album. The new album will hopefully be out sometime in 2016, following 2012’s King Animal which was their first new album since 1996.
