Chris Cornell Unveils New Music Video For "Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart," To Perform On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon On September 17th

Chris Cornell has revealed the official music video for his song "Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart", the debut single from his forthcoming solo album Higher Truth. To watch the video now, click HERE or see below. 

The video envisioned by Cornell and directed by Jessie Hill features a cameo by acclaimed Hollywood actors Eric Roberts (Runaway TrainHeroesThe Expendables), W. Earl Brown (Deadwood), as well as Chris Cornell making his acting debut.  It tells a love story in a quintessential Wild West setting with an unexpected ending.  The video demonstrates Cornell's instinctive ability to incorporate fascinating stories into his music. "Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart" is quickly climbing the Active Rock, Mainstream Rock, and Triple A charts. It was the most added song for two consecutive weeks at Triple A and Mainstream Rock and the most added at Active Rock for four weeks in a row - well on its way to entering the Top 10 at all three formats. 

Higher Truth will be released on Friday, September 18, 2015 via Universal Music Enterprises (UMe), and fans can pre-order the deluxe version of the album, which contains four bonus tracks, HERE.  Produced by Brendan O'Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Neil Young), Higher Truth showcases Cornell's constant evolution as a master songwriter, lyricist and musical craftsman - telling human stories which transcend musical genres.  Inspired by the stark arrangements of musicians like Nick Drake, Daniel Johnston and White Album-era Beatles, Cornell creates a musical universe unlike anything he has done before.

In celebration of the album's release, on Thursday September 17th Cornell will perform "Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart" live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. To watch the performance, tune in to NBC at 11:35/10:35c (check local listings).
