Soundgarden preview Halfway There

Soundgarden’s new album, “King Animal,” is due November 13.

As the release date approaches, the Seattle band continues to share material from the project.

Soundgarden have offered up a preview of the new track, “Halfway There.”

“The music and lyrics are written by Chris [Cornell],” says guitarist Kim Thayil. “It was originally a demo that he did where he performed everything, so we didn’t want to try to overdo that because it might obscure the narrative of the lyrics.”

The group recently released the first single, “Been Away Too Long”; earlier this year, Soundgarden issued another tune, “Live To Rise,” as part of the soundtrack for the film, "Marvel's The Avengers."
