As previously reported, Chris Cornell has enlisted hip hop and R&B heavyweight Timbaland to produce his third solo album. Cornell said about the team-up, "This is different from anything I've ever done. I've come from an indie rock world, where, if you have a producer, it's somebody who's not a musician, not a songwriter. He's just someone who twists knobs and can kinda tell you if they think a song is too long or too short or needs to be more aggressive. Tim 's a songwriter, so I was working with him in a collaboration, sort of as if we were in a band."

Timbaland told a Los Angeles radio station that he considered his collaboration with Cornell "the best work I've done in my career."

The producer is known for his work with artists such as JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE and NELLY FURTADO.

Cornell issued his second solo album, "Carry On", last year, following his departure from AUDIOSLAVE. His first solo effort, "Euphoria Morning", arrived in 1999, two years after SOUNDGARDEN disbanded.
