Cornell: 'My new LP is like Pink Floyd'

Chris Cornell has said his third solo record sounds like Pink Floyd and Queen.

The American singer, who fronted Soundgarden and Audioslave, claimed producer Timbaland had brought psychedelic elements to his music.

"Tim lent a lot to what I describe as sort of the psychedelic aspect of this album," he told Music Radar.

"Kind of a Pink Floyd on Dark Side Of The Moon or almost like a Queen Night At The Opera-type of feel to me."

He continued: "That's something I never would have predicted. You know, I would have felt like I would be the one that would try to go into the album-oriented rock world, and really it was Tim's influence on this album that pushed it more in that direction."

Cornell will release his Scream LP in the autumn.
