The New Chris Cornell Single Has A Spoken-Word Bit By Timbaland

I know, guys. I know. Also: Timbaland and Cornell are touring together. Also: Scream, the album from which “Scream” was taken, has apparently had its release date pushed back to next month. But think of it this way: At least this song isn’t a remake of that Timbaland/Keri Hilson/Nicole Scherzinger “sexy bank robbery” track from a few months ago. This doesn’t mean that it’s all that good, mind you. But I’m trying to be a bit more optimistic lately, and this six-minute, sorta-limp song that has some kind of James Bond outro appended to its already-too-long length is bringing out the “well, it could be worse, right?” in me like you wouldn’t believe.
