Soundgarden's Chris Cornell has announced plans to release an acoustic album.

The LP - 'Songbook' - features tracks from his band Soundgarden and former groups Audioslave and Temple Of The Dog.

The release will also feature covers by Led Zeppelin including 'Thank You' and John Lennon's classic hit 'Imagine'.

The album is set for release in the UK on November 21.

The full tracklisting is as follows:

'As Hope And Promise Fade'
'Scar On The Sky'
'Call Me A Dog'
'Ground Zero'
'Can't Change Me'
'I Am The Highway'
'Thank You'
'Cleaning My Gun'
'Wide Awake'
'Fell On Black Days'
'All Night Thing'
'Doesn't Remind Me'
'Like A Stone'
'Black Hole Sun'
'Imagine'
'The Keeper'


Cornell recently revealed that he couldn't read or write music and he regretted not persisting with piano lessons at an early age.

But he said the fact he can't read or write music hasn't hindered him in any way to becoming a successful singer and songwriter, and he can still explain his ideas to people.
