SOUNDGARDEN 'More Relaxed' Now When Making Music, Says CHRIS CORNELL

According to The Pulse Of Radio, SOUNDGARDEN singer Chris Cornell told Seattle radio station KISW in a new interview that the band's creative process for making a new album is "more relaxed" than it used to be when the band first achieved success. Cornell explained: "I think one of the things that was a factor in us kind of splitting up in the first place was that everything had a clock on it. It was a time period where, I guess in a good way, the music business was still pretty healthy and you were always in a cycle of recording and promoting and then touring, or writing, recording, and touring. And we were late for everything, always. We'd sit down and have these meetings, and we ended up not having meetings because it was so awful. But, you know, there'd be a counter in front of us, and someone would put a red X on the date that we were going to start the promotional tour for the album that we had not started to write yet. And so now, we just write when there’s no discussion really at all about when it’s going to come out, or what that means; we just write songs . And it doesn't happen any faster or slower; it just seems like it's more relaxed."

SOUNDGARDEN disbanded in 1997 but reunited 13 years later in 2010. The quartet issued a new studio effort, "King Animal", in 2012.

The group has recently gotten together to begin working on material for its seventh studio outing, which could be out before the end of this year.

Cornell also toured last year on his own in support of his fourth solo studio effort, "Higher Truth".
