No false starts for this band. Despite certain radio and retailers jumping the gun, Soundgarden's first single in over a decade and a half is officially up and running today.
It's called Been Away Too Long, it's a rocker, it's about homecomings in all their glorious complexity, it was written by Chris Cornell and Ben Shepherd, and it's streaming online at Soundgardenworld.com (or their official YouTube page, see above) for your listening pleasure.
Don't forget to pre-order Soundgarden's upcoming album, King Animal from Amazon or (very soon) from iTunes. And listen to Chris Cornell talk exclusively to Mary Anne Hobbs about the album, the single and Soundgarden's return at XFM at 8pm UK time tonight!
