AUDIOSLAVE Frontman Talks About Group's New Single

AUDIOSLAVE frontman Chris Cornell recently spoke to MTV.com about the group's second single off their "Out of Exile" album, entitled "Your Time Has Come".

"It's a bunch of references to people that I knew that ... were younger than me who've been dead for years and years, up to a couple of years ago," Cornell explained. "And then just kind of that juxtaposition of, even though it seems a lot for one person, a young healthy person, to have lost all these friends through various means of stupidity and other things, then making reference to the Vietnam War Memorial and the sheer numbers of dead. And remembering that and pointing out that each one of them has a family, each one of them has friends that are sitting around thinking about the same stuff that I did. But the numbers are astounding and, in a sense, kind of criminal. And that's what the song's about."

AUDIOSLAVE are still finalizing plans for the video, but will likely use footage from their free concert on Hollywood Boulevard last month after performing for "Jimmy Kimmel Live". The show was one of the band's most memorable, although not exactly for the right reasons.

"We had just played a free show in Havana, Cuba, so we thought we'd play a free show for our fans in Hollywood," guitarist Tom Morello explained. "The interesting thing though was when we played in Havana, the crowd of 70,000 was very peaceful, and so were the authorities. When we played on Hollywood Boulevard, the fans were very peaceful, and the authorities beat the crap out of them. So pick your own police state, whatever you want, that's cool with me."
