Praise for the album and the tour includes:
“One of rock’s most physically powerful and emotionally resonant vocalists.” - New York Daily News
"Cornell made his bones writing fiercely confessional hard-rock songs, then singing them as if his life depended on it. The only difference at the Beacon last night — you could hear so much more of the life inside.” – Rolling Stone
"A stellar collection of folk-inspired, classic rock-kissed songs that revolve around his iconic pipes.” - Entertainment Weekly
"The raspy, trenchant singer of Soundgarden performed acoustically when he last hit the Beacon Theater reminded many rock devotees of his operatically stunning range.” - The New York Times:
Produced by Brendan O'Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Neil Young), Higher Truth showcases Cornell's constant evolution as a master songwriter, lyricist and musical craftsman - telling human stories which transcend musical genres. Inspired by the stark arrangements of musicians like Nick Drake, Daniel Johnston and White Album-era Beatles, Cornell creates a musical universe unlike anything he has done before.
