CHRIS CORNELL: New Single 'Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart' Available For Streaming

"Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart", a brand new song from former AUDIOSLAVE and current SOUNDGARDEN singer Chris Cornell, is available for streaming at Apple Music. The track is the first single from Cornell's new solo album, "Higher Truth", which will be released on September 18. The CD was produced by Brendan O’Brien (BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, PEARL JAM, NEIL YOUNG).

Cornell will embark on a solo acoustic tour of North America this fall in support of "Higher Truth". The trek begins on September 20 in Los Angeles, winding down on November 2 in Austin, Texas.

Cornell will play songs from throughout his entire career at the shows including material from SOUNDGARDEN, TEMPLE OF THE DOG, AUDIOSLAVE and his three previous solo efforts.

The singer told The Pulse Of Radio a while back how he first started doing acoustic gigs. "It came from all the way back as far as SOUNDGARDEN with a song called 'Mind Riot', where I would just start to do it alone," he said. "And what I noticed was dynamically it was really great in the middle of a set to give the audience a break from just the sonic pounding. And in AUDIOSLAVE, I started having kind of like a four-, five-song interlude where I would just play acoustic guitar and sing. It was just so intimidating, but there was something about that, I guess, that I liked."

Cornell's previous solo albums include 1999's "Euphoria Morning", 2007's "Carry On" and the controversial 2009 release "Scream", which found the hard rock singer teaming with producer Timbaland for a more pop-urban sound.

SOUNDGARDEN reunited in 2010, touring extensively and releasing the "King Animal" album in 2012. Work on a new studio set is expected to begin sometime later this year.

Cornell told The Pulse Of Radio that he sees working with SOUNDGARDEN again as having a positive influence on his solo career. "One thing about a solo artist is you can just be in a room way too long with yourself and your own thoughts and your own songs, and it feels really good to be working with Ben [Shepherd, bassist] and Matt [Cameron, drummer] and Kim [Thayil, guitarist] again, and it's actually a really nice reprieve also from just being alone, doing what I do. It's helping with the balance, I think, too."
