Chris Cornell has been getting intimate with audiences across the world during his acoustic Songbook Tour over the past year. The Soundgarden recently played a solo show in London, where he broke out a rendition of the Beatles‘ ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ classic ‘A Day in the Life.’

Cornell had a show at the legendary London Palladium earlier this week (June 18). Judging by the footage, the British crowd was certainly receptive to hearing the singer’s take on the 1967 track, as audience memebers were singing along to the tune. According to Prefix, the Beatles weren’t the only U.K. artist that Cornell covered, as he also touched on Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin material. There was also a Michael Jackson song thrown in for good measure.

Cornell continued his trek across Europe this week. He’ll visit cities like Paris, France; Turin, Italy and Oslo, Norway and end on July 17 in Tel Aviv, Israel.

In related news, Soundgarden’s long-awaited new album could possibly see a 2012 release. Cornell told Rolling Stone that all the new songs were recorded and are currently being mastered, and he hopes to have a September or October release date.
