Blog: Is Chris Cornell Going Crunk?
If you’re yet to hear Chris Cornell’s new single ‘Part Of Me’, you might want to head on in.
Chris Cornell – one of the finest voices to bless rock music in the past 20 years, an amazing song-writer and the frontman for one of the Metal Hammer office’s favourite bands to grace the planet.
We have to get that out of the way before talking about his new single, ‘Part Of Me’. If you’re yet to hear it, listen to the track here and compare it to ‘Fell On Black Days’, ‘Outshined’,
Do we really want Cornell singing over the top of Timbaland’s bleeps? Is it really Cornell’s job to bring Sexyback? Is this not one of the most ‘WTF?’ musical moments in recent memory?
