Soundgarden main man Chris Cornell is dropping new details on the band’s upcoming the full-length, which marks the grunge rock outfit’s first studio album in a decade and a half. While Cornell says it’s “hard to describe” the style of the new songs, he thinks that the fresh tracks will keep in line with what fans know and love about Soundgarden.
“It's sort of picking up where we left off,” Cornell told NME. “We're a band where every single member contributes music so that makes it very diverse. It's a very rich album with a lot of different moods to it.”
Cornell also stated that the guys wrote the new album to be played as an entire collection of songs, as opposed to random singles.
“We're an album-orientated band, so I look forward to getting into long-form listening,” he said. “That seems to have disappeared over the last ten years. People seem to now be more into one song at a time."
Soundgarden’s new album is expected to drop sometime in October.
