Soundgarden member Kim Thayil has revealed that a new Soundgarden album featuring vocals from late frontman Chris Cornell is “entirely possible” in the future.
Cornell passed away in May 2017 after taking his own life. Now, in an interview on SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation LA Invasion show, Soundgarden guitarist Thayil has detailed the album the band was working on before Cornell’s death. After being asked if the album would ever be released, Thayil explained, “It is entirely possible, because that’s what we were doing…We definitely have another record in us. Stuff that’s written, stuff that’s demoed and recorded – certainly.”
“All it would need is to take the audio files that are available,” Thayil continued. “I’d tighten up the guitar stuff that’s on there, add other stuff. Ben [Shepherd] does the bass. Matt [Cameron] is able to get the drums he wants. We can get the producers we want to make it sound like a Soundgarden record. And yes, we can totally do that.”
