Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell goes solo with Texas show dates

Soundgarden's Chris Cornell playing Dallas' Majestic Theatre & Austin's ACL Live @ The Moody Theater

Chris Cornell's debut single - "Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart" - from his forthcoming studio album Higher Truth accomplished a rare feat as it became the #1 most added single at Triple A and Active Rock, two distinctly different formats, this week. Hailed by Rolling Stone magazine as "dynamic," "Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart" was also the #1 most added single at the Mainstream Rock format, a testament to the song and the legacy of the multiple Grammy® Award-winning, Golden Globe nominated and acclaimed singer and songwriter.


Higher Truth will be released on Friday, September 18, 2015 via Universal Music Enterprises (UMe), and fans can pre-order the deluxe version of album, which contains four bonus tracks. Produced by Brendan O'Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Neil Young), Higher Truth showcases Cornell's constant evolution as a master songwriter, lyricist and musical craftsman - telling human stories which transcend musical genres. Inspired by the stark arrangements of musicians like Nick Drake, Daniel Johnston and White Album-era Beatles, Cornell creates a musical universe unlike anything he has done before.

Last week Cornell released the lyric video for the song, directed by Josh Graham. The clip beautifully reflects the essence of the song and in a few short days it has racked up over 170K views.

In other news, Cornell will kick off the Higher Truth acoustic tour on September 18th in San Diego, CA crossing North America before winding down on November 4th in Phoenix, AZ stopping at famed venues like the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Massey Hall in Toronto and more.
