Chris Cornell: ‘Soundgarden are recording a diverse new album’

Singer chats about progress of band's first studio album in 15 years

Soundgarden are in the midst of recording a “diverse” new album, according to singer Chris Cornell.

The reunited collective are hard at work on their first studio album since 1996’s ‘Down On The Upside’, with Cornell giving fans an update in an interview with Billboard.

“We’re pretty far into our record now,” he said. “Every time we write a song we always take it for what it is and try to make it the most it can be. It’s very diverse, I can tell you that.”


As for a release date, Cornell said that the band were happy taking their time recording in his home studio in Seattle.

“We went into this with the idea that we wouldn’t worry about scheduling or timing,” he stated. “We would worry about making a great record. It’s been a pretty fast pace, considering everything. But we’re not putting any pressure on ourselves. Let the album decide when it’s done.”

Soundgarden‘s new live album ‘Live On I5’ is out now.
