Chris Cornell To Reissue Debut Album Under Proper Title

Now this is cool news. I’ve always enjoyed Chris Cornell’s first solo album, Euphoria Morning. Now it’s being remastered and re-released and, in an interesting twist, being given a new name which is funnily enough its old name. Cornell originally planned to call the record Euphoria Mourning but was talked out of it. I like this title. It puts a different spin on the material and seems to make a lot more sense. I might just have to get this on vinyl when it comes out on August 14.

PRESS RELEASE: When GRAMMY-winning, GOLDEN GLOBE® nominated singer/songwriter and rock icon Chris Cornell was about to release his 1999 solo debut on Interscope/A&M/Geffen Records, he was dissuaded from his first choice for the title, Euphoria Mourning, and reluctantly dubbed it Euphoria Morning. Now, 16 years later, Universal Music Enterprises is correcting that admitted misjudgment, re-releasing the re-mastered album under its original name on August 14, for the first time on vinyl as well as reissuing digitally and on CDEuphoria Mourning will be pressed on 180 gram vinyl and include a download card featuring 320 kbps MP4 audio ripped directly from the vinyl.
