Chris Cornell says Soundgarden are continuing to work on material on the follow-up to 2012’s “King Animal.”
“Soundgarden is in the middle of writing songs,” Cornell tells the Hartford Courant while on a North American tour in support of his latest solo album, “Higher Truth.” “After this tour the songs will become real and we'll put an album out. There's much more to Soundgarden. I get to play with my band and I get to go solo. It's great for me.”
The latest news follows word from the singer last fall that the Seattle rockers had regrouped for the project.
"We're already working on new material for an album," said Cornell last August. "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."
Following the completion of a spring tour across Europe, Cornell launched his summer series of solo acoustic shows in Clearwater, FL on June 16
