Chris Cornell’s New Album Shines

Higher Truth’ Sees Singer/Songwriter at His Best

Chris Cornell’s newest single, “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart,” ensnares you like a musical lasso, but it’s the strength of Higher Truth in its entirety that holds you tightly. Cornell approached this album, stripped of heavy production, with the sensibility of a back-porch storyteller spinning yarns both sweet and salty. Gorgeous guitar fingerpicking laces the majority of the songs, with standouts including “Murder of Blue Skies” and the stunning “Worried Moon.” It’s difficult to parse out which of the 16 titles on the album deserve special praise, as every song on Higher Truth is compelling. For this go out, Cornell has created an intimate aural space for listeners to settle in and get lost in the stories he tells.
