Video: CHRIS CORNELL Performs ‘Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart’ On ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’

SOUNDGARDEN singer Chris Cornell performed his new song “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart”, the debut single from his solo album “Higher Truth”, on last night’s (Thursday, September 17) edition of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”. You can watch video footage of his appearance below.

Cornell’s fourth solo studio set, “Higher Truth”, is being released on Friday (September 18). His first album on his own since 2009’s controversial “Scream” is in the singer-songwriter vein and very different from his work with SOUNDGARDEN. Cornell told The Pulse Of Radio that that was the point of doing it. “Writing an album like ‘Higher Truth’, the same as it was writing any of my solo records, there’s always this effort to try to make it different than the band that I’m known for,” he said. “Mainly just ‘cause I’ve never — as a music fan — never really liked when those two lines get kind of smeared.”

The “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart” video — envisioned by Cornell and directed by Jessie Hill — features a cameo by acclaimed Hollywood actors Eric Roberts (“Runaway Train”, “Heroes”, “The Expendables”), W. Earl Brown (“Deadwood”), as well as Chris Cornell making his acting debut. It tells a love story in a quintessential Wild West setting with an unexpected ending. The video demonstrates Cornell’s instinctive ability to incorporate fascinating stories into his music. Cornell will kick off the “Higher Truth” acoustic tour on September 18 in San Diego, California at the Balboa Theatre, stopping at famed North American venues like the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Massey Hall in Toronto and more before winding down on November 4 in Phoenix, Arizona at the Orpheum Theatre.
