Soundgarden – Black Hole Sun – Chris Cornell – Isolated Vocals – Analysis and Tutorial

Although Chris Cornell was a great singer with awesome distortion and amazing range, what stood out for me was what an incredible songwriter he was.

When you think of the greatest songwriters in rock, what names come to mind? Let me know in the comments?

Chris wrote the lyrics for “Black Hole Sun” in about 15 minutes and has said he wasn’t sure if the band was going to like it despite the fact that it went on to be the biggest hit of the summer of 1994.

As I dive into his isolated vocals from the track, I’ll explain how to get Chris’ sound using compression and how the track was recorded to create that intimacy.
