More than two years after the death of singer Chris Cornell, Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil says it's quite possible the band might have one more album to offer fans. Speaking to SiriusXM's Trunk Nation LA Invasion this week, Thayil said the band was working on a new album at the time of Cornell's death and there are unheard vocals the band could piece together.
"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," Thayil said of a possible follow-up to 2012's King Animal comeback. All it would need is to take the audio files that are available. 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." Cornell death by suicide came after a Soundgarden concert in Detroit in May 2017.
