Chris Cornell drops 45 sec tease of new song 'The Promise'

Well this is a bloody treat to wake up to.

Chris Cornell has teased a 45 second clip of his new song, The Promise, which will be released on Friday 10 March (which will probably be Saturday 11 March, NZ time).

In the studio recording my song "The Promise", which will be released this Friday, March 10. #KeepThePromise

It's a solo job and sounds like a slower, more melodic number from the Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman, but any new music from one of the best voices in rock is always welcomed by us.
