Chris Cornell announces North American dates

Chris Cornell has announced a run of acoustic North American dates for this summer.

He’ll head out on a European tour later this month in support of his solo album Higher Truth which was released last year.

He’ll kick off his latest leg of North American shows at the Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida, on June 16 and wrap up the run on July 27 at the Centennial Concert Hall, Winnipeg.

Last year, Cornell insisted he’d never set out to be a successful songwriter – and said his hits had been “accidents.”

He revealed: “I felt like I can write 10 songs, and if one of those somehow has a broader appeal, it’s an accident. But that accident will happen occasionally. And I’m not necessarily ever the best judge of it. I don’t feel particularly in touch with the commercial side of music as a fan, and I never was.”

The singer confirmed last year that Soundgarden would make “serious headway” on their next album, but wouldn’t be rushed into releasing it.
