Five reasons we can't wait for the Soxundgarden frontman's new solo album 'Higher Truth'
Chris Cornell will unveil his new solo album, Higher Truth, on September 18. Following three years on the road with Soundgarden and the killer 2012 King Animal, the singer returned to the studio to cut the new solo full-length. Given his penchant for striking melodies, vivid lyricism, and downright masterful songwriting, this is bound to be honest, hypnotic, and heartfelt beyond words. Simply put, it's a big reason to get excited this year. So, we wanted to give you our reasons for excitement over this record.
5 Reasons We Can't Wait for Higher Truth
5. He's launching the Acoustic Higher Truth Tour on September 20. Seeing Cornell solo is always rapturous. He covers his entire body of work and adds a distinct sense of soul on stage, intimately welcoming the audience, while transporting them some place altogether beyond this sphere. If you saw any of the Songbook shows, you know what we're talking about. If you haven't witnessed this phenomenon for yourself, make sure to get your tickets as early as possible.
4. He's following up a triumphantly creative Soundgarden album. 2012's King Animal saw Cornell firing on all cylinders as both a lyricist and performer. The touring onslaught that followed showcased just how powerful he remains. He's on a hot streak, and Higher Truth is the best point for this to culminate upon.
