'Scream' is set to be released in March

Ex-Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell and producer Timbaland have teamed up to record an album together.

The duo are set to release ‘Scream’ on March 9.

Every song on the album is said to have been partly inspired by Pink Floyd‘s legendary 1979 album ‘The Wall’. Each track flows into the next, giving the impression of one continuous piece of music.

Speaking about the collaboration, Cornell said he thought the album was “the best work I’ve done in my career”.

Cornell also announced details of a European tour set to take place this February.

Chris Cornell will play:

London Scala (February 23)

Paris La Cigale (25)

Amsterdam Paradiso (26)

Berlin Columbiahalle (27)
