Cornell Defiant Over New Direction
Former Soundgarden and Audioslave front man Chris Cornell has been doing the rounds on US television, defending his latest opus, the much-maligned Scream.
Appearing on NBC-TV’s ‘Last Call With Carson Daly’, Cornell spoke of his satisfaction with the LP, stating that even the cover art was an “unapologetic symbol that ‘this is not a guitar album’”.
Cornell later defended his decision to work with hip-hop uber producer, Timberland, promising that the collaboration is “musically, not what it looks like on paper.”
Before closing the interview, Cornell also hinted that those how are brave enough to venture out and catch him whilst he is on tour could be in for treat, as he may play the album, in it’s entirety on certain occasions.
“I might decide at the last minute[before a show] just to play all of ‘Scream’ first.
“It’s one of the most exciting things I’ve ever done live.”
