Chris Cornell has proven time and time again that he is one of the premier performers and song writers on the planet. He plans to add to his legacy with a new album and tour later this year.

Alternative Addiction reports the new Brendan O'Brien produced solo album, 'Higher Truth' will drop on September 18th. His solo acoustic tour kicks off a few days after the albums release and will run through October 27th with a show at Nashville's legendary Ryman Auditorium.

Unfortunately, there are no Hudson Valley dates among the announced dates. Although he will be playing at NYC's Beacon Theater on 10/28.

Chris Cornell performed at The Bardavon in the fall of '11. I managed to capture his final song from the show. Excuse the quality towards the end, all in all a terrific performance.
