Anne Erickson of Gibson has interviewed Chris Cornell of Soundgarden.
Here is an excerpt:
Upon first listen to Chris Cornell’s upcoming solo album, Higher Truth, the Soundgarden frontman’s lush, soaring vocals reach out and caress you with a warm, rich tone and color. The guitar chords also grab you with their clear, clean tone and slight snarl.
Higher Truth is the solo album Cornell diehards have been hoping to hear. It’s heartfelt and melodic, but raw and real enough to make it rock. I could listen to this album for days.
Cornell was kind enough to speak with me about Higher Truth, his first encounter with his now-beloved ES-335 and the status of new Soundgarden music.
Higher Truth is in stores Sept. 18. Also on tap for Cornell is a fall North American tour. I caught one of his previous “Songbook” tour dates and can vouch that his solo, acoustic shows are enchanting. For the full list of tour dates, visit www.ChrisCornell.com.
