Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil has revealed that they were working on new music with Chris Cornell prior to his death.


Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil has revealed that they were working on new music with Chris Cornell prior to his death.

"We were working on an album and there's material there that we demoed that we can flesh out when we can access some of the basic, multi(-track) recordings, sure. That's being discussed," Thayil said to Billboard.

Thayil also said it it's unlikely the surviving members would continue under the Soundgarden name.

"It's not likely that we could ever do Soundgarden without a missing piece. I'd like to do more with Matt in the future. I'd like to do something with Ben in the future. It's likely Matt and Ben and I will do something in the future -- it just probably won't be Soundgarden. I don't see the dignity in pursuing that course," he said.

Thayil also said he is satisfied with Soundgarden's legacy, however, said it "needs to be maintained."

"That's why I'm overseeing the catalog and the merchandise, and I've been doing that all along because it's important that the legacy is understood. There's an ever-expanding demographic of potential Soundgarden fans amidst a shrinking demographic of consumers, so it's important that they there are good ways for them to hear what we did."

Cornell died May 18, 2017 of an apparent suicide following a performance in Detroit. He was 52 years old.
