Soundgarden's 2012 album will 'pick up where they left off'

Singer Chris Cornell shared: "We have an album coming out in the fall. It's kind of hard to describe, it's sort of picking up where we left off. There's a lot of different feels on the album."

While Soundgarden released their comeback single "Live To Rise" earlier this year (April 5th) and recently performed first UK show in 15 years on June 10th at Download 2012, they recently gave details about the upcoming album. And they said it would "pick up where they left off" when they split up in 1996.


Speaking to NME.com the band said the new album be "very rich" and "diverse". About their plans for their first studio album since 1996's Down On The Upside, singer Chris Cornell shared: "We have an album coming out in the fall. It's kind of hard to describe, it's sort of picking up where we left off. There's a lot of different feels on the album."


He added: "We're a band where every single member contributes music so that makes it very diverse. It's a very rich album with a lot of different moods to it."


"It's great to put out a new song after so long. If you look at the history of our band, you can't just listen to one song or take one song out of context and say 'This is what we sound like'," he said about their recent single "Live To Rise" which also served as Soundtrack for marvel's action movie The Avengers. He continued: "I'm looking forward to putting out a whole album, where you get a collection of songs. We're an album-orientated band, so I look forward to getting into long-form listening. That seems to have disappeared over the last 10 years, people seem to know be more into one song at a time."


The singer also spoke about how the band reunited, adding: "We met up because we wanted to take responsibility for the legacy of the band. Once we were together and hanging out, we thought we should do a surprise show and play five songs. And then they we thought we'd do a real show, and then we should do a tour. Once we were in a room and playing music, it naturally led to writing songs."
