Chris Cornell Reveals How New Temple of the Dog Album Could Happen


Chris Cornell, Jeff Ament, and Mike McCready discussed the possibility of a second Temple of the Dog album in a new Rolling Stone article.

Cornell: There’s always a chance [we’ll record more songs.] Just from my perspective, it would have to feel great. It’s a scary thing. I don’t want to say it would have to live up to the [first] album, but I wouldn’t want to take away from it. That’s the issue with me. I don’t want to detract from what happened before.

Ament: I just don’t know. That record is so unique in terms of what initiated it. But I love recording, so I’d always be up for it, I think. As far as more touring, it depends how we feel after the first set of dates. If everyone is excited, it might become a thing we do every once in a while. We can call each other up and say, “Hey, we just got an offer to plan London,” or something. That would be fun.

McCready: I hope we record again. It all depends on Chris and Chris’ interest. But I would record new songs in a minute. There hasn’t been any talk of it, but if Chris is into it and so are the rest of the guys, I’m totally into that.
