Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil says the band is being denied access to master recording files.
After Chris Cornell passed away in 2017, the band wanted to add to the vocal tracks that he completed. However, Thayil told MusicRadar in a new interview that he and bandmates Ben Shepherd and Matt Cameron are being denied access to the album they started working on before Cornell’s death.
“We tried to get this going two years ago, but we’re not in possession of any of the demos that Chris was working on,” Thayil said. “We have copies of them, but what we need are the files, so that we’d be able to overdub and finish the record. We are not in possession of those.”
