The singer quit in 2007, citing "irresolvable personality conflicts as well as musical differences", and reformed Soundgarden, but now he tells Total Guitar magazine he would be up for a reunion.
Cornell says, "I think it would be great. We did a lot of songs, and with the benefit of not having done anything with those guys for so long, I can't imagine what it would be. It would be a really amazing experience just to get back and work with the same guys again.

Ten days before it is due to be released officially, High Hopes is available to listen to now, and it's all thanks to the hit CBS drama The Good Wife.
High Hopes has already recevied mostly positive feedback
High Hopes was made available to stream in its entirety via the CBS website, the the full album being uploaded to the site following the ending of last night's (5 Jan.) episode of the hit legal program. At around 10 pm last night, in a unique tie in with the episode that preceded it, the album was released early for all to enjoy.
The album was leaked in induvidual track form two whole weeks ahead of schedule.
Bet you didn’t know that Bruce Springsteen had a new album out. Yes, The Boss managed to sneak one past everybody, but it’s ok, because apparently Amazon managed to sneak the album release past him. That might be taking the whole Beyonce surprise album release thing a bit too far.
Springsteen's album leaked two weeks ahead of schedule.
According to Billboard, the online retailer briefly made some mp3s from Springsteen’s High Hopes available for purchase earlier than scheduled on Saturday, December 28. The album was actually scheduled for January 14. Fortunately, it was only open for purchase on the Amazon mobile app and the glitch was fixed quickly. The damage might be done already however, since the songs from the album have since found their way to file sharing websites and the illegal downloads are practically impossible to control.
Bruce Springsteen's new album 'High Hopes' was briefly available on Amazon over the weekend, two weeks before it's originally release date.
