When asked about what SOUNDGARDEN's forthcoming album sounds like, singer Chris Cornell told NME TV, "It's kind of hard to describe. It's sort of like picking up where we left off. There's a lot of different feels on the album. We're a band where every single member contributes music. So that creates diversity and a lot of different songwriter partnerships and things that we only do as a group. I think it's a very rich album with a lot of different moods to it."
"Live To Rise", the first SOUNDGARDEN song in almost 16 years, was made available as a free download on iTunes beginning April 17 as part of the promotion of "Marvel's The Avengers". The seven-day promotion included an exclusive clip, "The Face Off", from the superhero team-up movie, which came out on May 4.
"Live To Rise" was written specifically for "Marvel's The Avengers"after SOUNDGARDEN was approached about contributing a song to the film.
