Chris Cornell will release his fifth studio album Higher Truth on Friday, September 18, 2015.
Produced by Brendan O’Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Neil Young), Higher Truth showcases Cornell's constant evolution as a master songwriter, lyricist and musical craftsman – telling human stories, which transcend musical genres. Inspired by the stark arrangements of musicians like Nick Drake, Daniel Johnston and White Album-era Beatles, Cornell creates a musical universe unlike anything he has done before.
“Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart”, the first single from Higher Truth premiered on Beats 1 / Apple Music on Tuesday, August 11th with Cornell sitting in on Zane Lowe’s show for a discussion about the new single and album. Fans who preorder the album on iTunes will receive “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart” as an instant download. The lyric video for the song is directed by Josh Graham and beautifully reflects the essence of the song. View it HERE.
Cornell will kick off the Higher Truth acoustic tour on September 17th in Phoenix, AZ crossing North America before winding down on November 2nd in Austin, TX stopping at famed venues like the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Massey Hall in Toronto and more.
