Due Sept. 18 and produced by Brendan O’Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Neil Young), the album expresses Cornell’s continuing evolution as a songwriter, lyricist and musical craftsman, telling stories which resonate across genre barriers.

The multi-city trek iincludes stops in Chicago, New York, Austin and Seattle, where Cornell performs Sept. 29 at Benaroya Hall. The tour gives fans the chance to see the iconic rocker perform in an unplugged, up-close and personal setting and includes songs spanning his entire career, as well as new material from “Higher Truth.”
