SOUNDGARDEN frontman Chris Cornell has confirmed that the band hopes to record the follow-up to 2012’s comeback album, “King Animal”, early in 2017 with the goal of releasing the disc later in the year.
During a December 5 appearance on “Whiplash”, the KLOS radio show hosted by Full Metal Jackie, Cornell was asked if there are any plans for the band to tour and release new music anytime soon. He responded: “Well, it’ll be in 2017 — both those things, hopefully, will happen — barring any, sort of, unforeseen thing, which I don’t… I don’t see any reason why those two things won’t happen. The next thing that I am committing myself to concentrating on a hundred percent is the next SOUNDGARDEN album.”
