Multiple Grammy® Award-winning, Golden Globe Nominated and acclaimed singer and songwriter Chris Cornell will release his fifth studio album Higher Truth on Friday, September 18, 2015 via Universal Music Enterprises (UMe). Starting today fans can pre-order the deluxe version of the highly anticipated album HERE, which contains four bonus tracks.

Produced by Brendan O’Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Neil Young), Higher Truth showcases Cornell’s constant evolution as a master songwriter, lyricist and musical craftsman – telling human stories, which transcend musical genres. Inspired by the stark arrangements of musicians like Nick Drake, Daniel Johnston and White Album-era Beatles, Cornell creates a musical universe unlike anything he has done before.

“Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart,” the first single from Higher Truth was premiered on Beats 1 / Apple Music on Tuesday, August 11th with Cornell sitting in on Zane Lowe’s show for a discussion about the new single and album.
