Soundgarden Set to Start Recording New Album

Chris Cornell confirmed to Spin magazine that Soundgarden will begin recording their first new album in 15 years next week in Seattle.

The Soundgarden singer also told Spin that the band does not have a set schedule or pre-determined finish line.

“We’re putting the music first,” Cornell explained. “The process of writing, recording, and being creative together is the most important thing, not meeting a deadline.”

After a 13-year hiatus, Soundgarden reunited in the spring of 2010 to play a few secret gigs before a very public outing at Lollapalooza. Watch footage from that festival appearance below.
