Today, Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell has shared the first single from his upcoming solo album, Higher Truth. Listen to "Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart" above, via the YouTube lyric video.
Cornell's familiar vocals sound crisp as the track begins with acoustic mandolin picking. The song fills out with bass, strings, guitar, and drums. Minimal sound effects lurk underneath, and a distorted guitar solo gives the track a folk rock vibe. The production has some elements reminiscent of classic Lennon-McCartney Beatles songs.
Pick up Higher Truth on Amazon (MP3). The album is set for a September 18th, 2015 release.
Chris Cornell is hitting the road in September in support of the new album, embarking on the Acoustic Higher Truth Tour.
