And lastly, The remaining members of Soundgarden want to finish the demos Chris Cornell recorded for the new album they were working on before his death two years ago.
When asked why they haven’t been able to get the original files, Thayil replied, “We don’t know. We’ve asked nicely, we’ve suggested that this will benefit all parties, if the band could just have these files, and we could finish the songs we were working on. But there seems to be some confusion amongst various parties as to what that would entail and how that works, and who that would benefit.”
Thayil says the material they were working on before Cornell’s death featured “maybe a couple of sad songs, and a couple of heavy songs that in general feel were — where we were at in the writing process — kind of mixed like King Animal, but a little bit less of the heavy stuff. But it was still interesting, still quirky stuff.”
