One of rock’s greatest singers, Chris Cornell scaled the music world decades ago with Soundgarden, selling millions of records, packing arenas and helping to define the sound of a generation.

But Cornell has always written solo songs as well — and in the last few years, happily remarried and sober, he says he wanted to challenge himself as a musician and performer.

To that end, Cornell has come through our region several times on his Songbook tour, when the show is largely a showcase for his intimate and powerful songs for guitar and voice.

Now, Cornell has released his fourth solo album, Higher Truth.

Originally aired September 2015.
