Today, Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell released his fourth studio album, titled Higher Truth. For the LP, Cornell enlisted Brendan O'Brien as the producer. Previous Chris Cornell related albums O'Brien has worked on include Soundgarden's Superunknown and Audioslave's Revelations. Special guests on the record include drummer Matt Chamberlain, pianist Patrick Wong, and violinist Anne-Marie Simpson.

In speaking with Rolling Stone, Cornell shared his thoughts on Higher Truth and working with Brendan O'Brien:

I wanted the album to be intimate and small and so I didn't want to hire a band. I also know how Brendan works. He's very focused and very quick and he always makes the right choices. Some of it was a leap of faith for me, but everything I wanted to get out of our relationship I got and none of the fears I had came to fruition at all. I feel like I got pretty lucky.

Chris also shared insight about his songwriting process:

Often times, especially in the context of an acoustic song, I'm motivated to write by some amount of melancholy. I listened to a lot of other acoustic albums going into this. There's a sort of chipper, uptempo nature to a lot of records, like with Jack Johnson, where it sounds great and there's an intimacy to it. But I don't have that in me.

Tracks we recommend include "Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart," "Worried Moon," "Josephine," "Higher Truth," and "Wrong Side."

Pick up Higher Truth on Amazon (Vinyl, CD, MP3). You can also stream the full album for free above, via Spotify.

Cornell will be on the road beginning this month for his Acoustic Higher Truth Tour. For more information on that, as well as his latest music and news, check out his Zumic artist page.
