Solo tour kicks off this fall
Chris Cornell's debut single, "Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart," from his forthcoming studio album "Higher Truth," accomplished a rare feat as it became the No. 1 most added single at triple A and active rock, two distinctly different formats, this week.
Hailed by Rolling Stone magazine as "dynamic," "Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart" was also the No. 1 most added single at the mainstream rock format, a testament to the song and the legacy of the multiple Grammy Award-winning, Golden Globe-nominated acclaimed singer and songwriter.
"Higher Truth" will be released Friday, Sept. 18, via Universal Music Enterprises (UMe). Fans can pre-order the deluxe version of album, which contains four bonus tracks, HERE.
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 that transcend musical genres. Inspired by the stark arrangements of musicians such as Nick Drake, Daniel Johnston and "White Album"-era Beatles, Cornell creates a musical universe unlike anything he has done before.
Last week, Cornell released the lyric video for the song, directed by Josh Graham. The clip beautifully reflects the essence of the song and, in a few short days, it has racked up more than 170,000 views. See it HERE.
In other news, Cornell will kick off the "Higher Truth" acoustic tour on Sept. 18 in San Diego. The tour will cross North America before winding down Nov. 4 in Phoenix, stopping at famed venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and Massey Hall in Toronto.
