Soundgarden recently released a 1:21 minute long video in which Chris Cornell and Matt Cameron discuss writing and recording “By Crooked Steps,” the third song off the rock band’s upcoming album, King Animal, due for release November 13th through Seven Four Entertainment and Republic Records.

The video starts and ends with a short preview of “By Crooked Steps” (which sounds pretty much amazing!), between which Cameron speaks about the conception of the song and Cornell goes on to elaborate on how the song is an example of how Soundgarden has maintained their core sound while managing to evolve to “another level.”
