Chris Cornell has posted a photo on Twitter announcing that he is back in the studio. Soundgarden began work on their next album a few months ago, their first since 2012’s comeback record King Animal.

Chris Cornell told The Advertiser Confidential last month that Soundgarden will begin recording their next album immediately after he concludes touring Higher Truth. The band already started working on material a couple of months ago.
“It’s great to be able to do the Soundgarden stuff and my solo career simultaneously,” he says.
“That’s what makes me lucky as a performer. As soon as this album cycle is over I’m working on Soundgarden songs for an album — I get to do a lot of different things and it feels like I get to have my cake and eat it too.”
Cornell also discussed his longevity in the industry, ““It feels much shorter but the scary thing is means I’m much older than the next guy doing this,” he says. “But you know it’s rare that someone who comes from the world I come from which is indie alternative can have a career this long and be able to still make new music.”
