Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell has started recording a new solo album. The singer posted the news on his Twitter account, followed by a picture of a jumble of wires and cables hooked up in the studio.
Cornell released his first solo album, ‘Euphoria Morning,’ back in 1999 and has two other solo discs under his belt: ‘Carry On’ (2007) and ‘Scream,’ which he created with Timbaland in 2009. He’s also released a live acoustic album titled ‘Songbook,’ which featured tunes recorded during his 2011 ‘Songbook’ tour, a trek he revived in 2013.
Soundgarden have just released a three-CD rarities collection called ‘Echo of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across the Path,’ last November and it’s been reported that they will return to the studio to record new material this year.
On Jan. 30th, Cornell will join Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagen and the living members of Mad Season for a special performance with the Seattle Symphony.
