Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell is in the studio, cranking out new solo tracks

Soundgarden have been pretty active lately. Last summer, the guys toured with Nine Inch nails, and the Soundgarden camp also recently released a compilation set called “Echo of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across the Path.” So, you might be surprised to learn Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell is starting to work on a new solo album.

“Day 1 of recording a new solo album and as it happens, learning that I share a name with an alleged jihadist,” Cornell tweeted Thursday, making a reference to Christopher Lee Cornell, who was arrested on charges of trying to kill a U.S. government official in a suspected attempt to attack the U.S. Capitol.

Cornell then tweeted a photo of twisted wires and recording equipment. The text of the tweet reads, “Back in the studio!”

Cornell’s debut solo album, “Euphoria Morning,” dropped in 1999, about two years after Soundgarden called it quits. All in all, he’s released four solo albums, the most recent being “Songbook,” which arrived in 2011.
