Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil was asked during an interview on the satellite radio program Trunk Nation if it was possible that a new album featuring the final recordings by late singer Chris Cornell could see the light of day.

Thayil responded, "It is entirely possible, because that's what we were doing," adding, "We definitely have another record in us. Stuff that's written, stuff that's demoed and recorded -- certainly. All it would need is to take the audio files that are available . . . We can get the producers we want to make it sound like a Soundgarden record."

Soundgarden was working on new music before Cornell's death in May 2017, and the singer had laid down some vocal tracks. Asked if there were any obstacles to completing the LP, Thayil said, "There shouldn't be . . . other than the fact that we don't have those files." He continued, "I think that will happen. It would be ridiculous if it didn't. But these are difficult things -- partnerships and property."

Thayil did rule out the possibility of Soundgarden touring without Cornell, saying, "I do not see, given the commitments that other band members have, given our sentiments and love for Chris, I do not see us reconfiguring a tour or anything, as other bands have done in the past, without him."

Soundgarden is among the nominees for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame's class of 2020. The top vote-getters will be announced in January and inducted on May 2nd, 2020 at a ceremony at Cleveland's Public Hall.
