Chris Cornell begins recording new solo album

Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell reveals he has begun work on a new solo album.

“Day 1 of recording a new solo album and as it happens, learning that I share a name with an alleged jihadist,” tweeted the singer, followed by a second note with an image of recording gear, “Back in the studio!”

Crnell has released four solo albums to date, including “Euphoria Morning” (1999), “Carry On” (2007), “Scream” (2009) and the acoustic live album, “Songbook” (2011), from his tour of the same name.

On January 30, Cornell will perform with Mad Season featuring Mike McCready of Pearl Jam and Duff McKagan plus the Seattle Symphony orchestra at a special 'Sonic Evolution' concert at Seattle's Benaroya Hall.

Cornell and Soundgarden wrapped up their “King Animal” tour in September and the band performed at Neil Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit Concerts in October.

In November, Soundgarden released “Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path”, a 3-disc, 50-track rarities compilation of original B-sides, unreleased tracks, instrumentals, covers and demos curated by guitarist Kim Thayil.
