Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell will be releasing a new solo album "Higher Truth" on Sept. 18 via Universal Music. The first single from the disc is "Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart", and you can check out the lyric video for the song above.

"Higher Truth" is Cornell's fifth solo album, and first since 2011's "Songbook". It was produced by Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen), and pre-orders of the deluxe edition with four bonus tracks are available at this location.

Cornell will be embarking on a North American solo acoustic tour in support of the album. The 30-plus date trek kicks off Sept. 17 in Phoenix, Ariz., and wraps up Nov. 2 in Austin, Texas.

The rest of 2015 is a busy one for Cornell, and it looks like things won't slow down in 2016 because Soundgarden plan to release a new album sometime next year.
