Before we see a new Soundgarden album, fans should look for a new Chris Cornell solo album coming this fall. The vocalist has taken advantage of some downtime in the schedule to record a new acoustic disc that’s expected to arrive in September.

Cornell has titled the album Higher Truth and it will be the follow-up to his polarizing 2009 solo set, Scream. Additional details on the disc have not been revealed, but Cornell has already begun setting up touring support for the disc. He’ll kick off a tour of Australia and New Zealand on Nov. 20 in Christchurch, New Zealand. Following in the vein of the acoustic set, the dates are said to be “unplugged, up-close and personal.”

Though Soundgarden have been on hold and Cornell’s been in the studio working on his new album, the rocker has remained a fixture at radio. He a guest collaborator on “Heavy Is the Head,” the recent chart-topping single from country superstars the Zac Brown Band.

Soundgarden’s most recent release was the 2012 studio album King Animal. They also released a massive rarities, B sides and covers set titled Echo of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across the Path in 2014.
