After a sold-out spring tour this year, Grammy-award winning singer/songwriter, Chris Cornell is releasing an album of live Songbook tour performances on November 22, 2011 featuring songs written by Cornell as well as a few covers. In addition to being one of the most acclaimed voices in rock, he stands in a class of his own as a songwriter whose works have reached limitless audiences, the world over. Familiar songs emerge in a new context, showing that great songs translates to any idiom.
Recently Cornell wrote and performed “The Keeper,” the poignant original song for Relativity’s feature film Machine Gun Preacher (directed by Marc Forster) which premiered at the Toronto International Film festival. ArtistDirect said of the song, “Cornell manages to channel Bob Dylan and Robert Plant all at once in one of the best songs of his own catalogue.”
Cornell recently appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, PBS’ Travis Smiley, and Jimmy Kimmel Live! in October performing “The Keeper.”
