Chris Cornell will release a new album titled Songbook on November 21 that consists of acoustic performances from his ongoing solo tour. The track list, which you can check out below, features songs from Cornell's previous groups — Soundgarden, Audioslave, and Temple of the Dog — along with covers of Led Zeppelin's "Thank You" and John Lennon's "Imagine."

Also, Stereogum tracked down the previously unreleased "Cleaning My Gun."
