WITH just one week until record release, Chris Cornell is giving his fans the opportunity to hear the album as it was intended – in full.

Cornell will be streaming his third solo album, Scream, produced by Timbaland, on MySpace for 48 hours starting at 12pm EST from March 3 until 12pm EST Thursday, March 5.

Scream is described as a seamless work, upon which Timbaland makes inventive use of Cornell’s soaring melodies and incisive lyrics, setting his intense vocal performances against a lush, expressive soundscape and irresistible stutter-step beats.

The inventive new work looks to spearhead a brave new world of cross-genre collaboration.

The 13-track album is due out on March 10 via Interscope/Mosley Music. Chris is currently on tour in Europe and will kick off his multi-city US tour on March 28 in Dallas, Texas.

Scream showcases a new, seductive sound – dark, multi-layered and full of puzzles and surprises. The songs bring a new cinematic scope to Cornell’s performances, with potent visual imagery echoing the non-stop musical assault from his internationally acclaimed live band.

“Musically, this is the most ambitious thing I’ve been a part of. It’s almost like a movie soundtrack,” says Cornell, who while on tour will also be playing other music from throughout his two-decade, 14-album career.
