Soundgarden working on new album

Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell says the Seattle band have begun work on the follow-up to 2012’s “King Animal.”

"We're already working on new material for an album," Cornell tells Rolling Stone. "And then I've got several other irons in the fire and things going that I won't mention now. There's a lot of things coming in addition to ‘Higher Truth’, as well as a new Soundgarden album."

Cornell shared the news as he prepares for the September 18 release of his fourth solo album, “Higher Truth.”

Produced by Brendan O'Brien, the project was recorded earlier this year in Seattle.

The singer will launch “Higher Truth” with a 6-week theater tour of North America followed by dates in New Zealand and Australia starting in late November.

Last fall, Soundgarden issued “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.
