We dig the crossover thing when a musician whos known to only dabble in one genre decides to try his or her hand at, say, melodramatic pop or Toby Keith-esque country barf. Sometimes the experimentation is successful (listen to Outkasts Speakerboxxx/The Love Below). Other times, the music comes off sounding like, well, somebody barfing inside of a moving car (dont ever listen to the soft-rock puke known as Garth Brooks In the Life of Chris Gaines).
Later this year (on November 4, to be exact), Chris Cornell frontman for Soundgarden and Audioslave as well as an accomplished solo artist will be dropping a new album. Yeah, so what? Well, guess who produced this album (which is called Scream)? None other than hip-hop artist/producer/czar Timbaland. Sounds like a kind of messed-up collaboration that could actually be pretty tight, huh?
Get a live preview of Scream when Cornell and Timbaland perform at Marquee Theatre.
