Former Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell will release his

debut solo album Sept. 21 on A&M Records, according to a spokesperson

for the singer. Cornell, who turned in the 12-song album last month,

recorded it in the home studio of Alain Johannes and Natasha

Shneider of the band Eleven. Though he plays many of the

instruments himself, the album features contributions by Johannes and

Shneider, as well as ex-Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron and

ex-Vandals/current Guns N' Roses drummer Josh Freese.
