IT’S not often that two legends in music get together to record a full album and even rarer that they’re from completely opposite ends of the musical spectrum.

Ex-Soundgarden/Audioslave vocalist Chris Cornell has teamed up with hip hop and pop super-producer Timbaland to create a new album entitled Scream, which is due for release on March 9, 2009.

The collaboration is something that Chris calls “the best work I’ve done in my career”, and is billed as a genre-breaking, pop-rock record for the 21st Century that features some of the most innovative and revolutionary arrangements ever crafted.

All the songs on Scream, which were written by Chris Cornell and produced by Timbaland, make up an album that was inspired partly by Pink Floyd’s all-time classic album, The Wall.

All 13 of the songs on Scream flow into each other giving it the feel of one complete work with no breaks, drawing on both artists talents to re-write the modern musical rulebook.

Cornell will be playing a show at London’s Scala on Monday, February 23, 2009. Tickets are £27.50 and go onsale on Friday, January 9 at 10am.
