Cornell's Higher Truth out on September 18

Chris Cornell’s next solo album will be released on September 18, he’s confirmed.

The Soundgarden frontman’s fourth solo effort, entitled Higher Truth, is out ahead of a solo acoustic tour of Australia and New Zealand.

And he’s confirmed he’ll take his solo acoustic show on the road in North America, starting in Los Angeles on September 20.

Cornell posted an update from the studio in March saying he’d completed recording the follow-up to 2011’s Songbook. Soundgarden are this year due to record their first material since 2012 comeback King Animal.

Tickets for the North American acoustic shows go on general sale on Friday (June 5).
