Some records you just expect on wax!
His first solo LP, Euphoria Morning showcased one of Rock’s foremost artists and vocalists. Stripping back the darkness of Soundgarden to the bones that would form the basis for Audioslave, Cornell released a timeless debut that still stands tall today. One we’ve been hoping would be given the deluxe vinyl treatment long before now.
And so……on Augut 14th, we and USM are delighted to announce the reissue of CHRIS CORNELL’S first solo album, under the originally intended title Euphoria Mourning, featuring remastered audio for all formats whilst also available on vinyl for the very first time.
First released in September 1999 under the title ‘Euphoria Morning’ (note the missing ‘u’), this was Cornell’s first solo album and his only album released between the split of Soundgarden and the formation of Audioslave. In Cornell’s own words “The title of the record has been restored to its original spelling, which was changed before release after I listened to some bad advice.”
Featured on the album is first single, ‘Can’t Change Me’, which was nominated for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance at the 2000 GRAMMY® Awards.
‘Flutter Girl’ was reportedly an outtake from Soundgarden’s 1994 album, Superunknown, while Cornell revealed later on during a 2007 solo tour that ‘Wave Goodbye’ was written as a tribute to Jeff Buckley, who tragically drowned in Memphis in 1997.
The remastered album will be available on CD, standard digital download, MFiT, as well as on 180g heavyweight vinyl for the first time – with MP4 digital download code.
