    Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Chris Cornell is joining forces with Billboard.com and iTunes to give fans their first chance to hear his upcoming live solo album, Songbook prior to its release! Awesome, right? We are all for the try-before-you-buy model!

    Here are details: In a brand new iTunes initiative, Songbook will be released in three parts beginning with Songbook EP 1, comprised of four tracks, which drops today. Songbook EP 2 is also four tracks and will land the following on Tuesday, Nov. 15. On Nov. 21, the entire Songbook album will be available on iTunes. 24 hours prior to each EP's release, the songs will be streaming on Billboard.com. Listen to Songbook EP 1 by going here and check back on Nov. 14 to hear Songbook EP 2.

    The concept of Songbook arose out of strong fan demand. Cornell wanted to honor fans' desire to hear his work stripped down, as well as to thank them for their constant support during the 'Songbook' tour. He also used fan photography from that tour in the artwork for the album.

    "My fans were pretty vocal, tweeting and posting online, asking me to record the shows and put them out. So this album as a whole came from that, and I think we created something that really captured my tour and what I was putting out there each night," said Cornell. He's all about the fans.
