Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell appears on the upcoming release from the Zac Brown Band
Chris Cornell is known for his thick, gravelly vocals, which are perfect to front Soundgarden’s grunge jams. Cornell is taking a quick break from the rock to guest on Zac Brown Band’s upcoming album, “Jekyll + Hyde.” Cornell appears on the song “Heavy is the Head” off the release. The song is currently No. 37 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart, making it the Zac Brown Band’s first showing on the rock chart.
The Zac Brown Band are known for buddying up with rockers, so this isn’t too surprising a move. After all, the band guests on the Foo Fighters’ track “Congregation,” off the band’s latest release, “Sonic Highways.”
In other Cornell news, the singer is currently working on some new solo tunes. Cornell’s last studio album, “Scream,” was produced by Timbaland and took a detour from his usually heavy rock ‘n’ roll sound.
Meanwhile, Soundgarden are taking a break, but they have managed to keep plenty busy lately, between releasing a compilation set called “Echo of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across the Path” and touring last summer with Nine Inch Nails.
“Jekyll + Hyde” will arrive on April 28.
