When Grammy-winning 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, UME is correcting that admitted misjudgment, re-releasing the re-mastered album under its original name in August 2015, for the first time on vinyl. "The title of the record has been restored to its original spelling," notes Cornell. "Which was changed before release after I listened to some bad advice."
His first release outside of his work as lead singer with Soundgarden, Euphoria Morning, as it was then called, was a collaboration with Alain Johannes and Natasha Shneider of the band Eleven, who appeared on the album, co-wrote five of the tracks and were credited as co-producers, engineers and mixers with Cornell. The album's first single, "Can't Change Me," was nominated for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance at the 2000 Grammy Awards. "Flutter Girl" was reportedly an outtake from Soundgarden's 1994 album, Superunknown, while Cornell revealed later on during a 2007 solo tour that "Wave Goodbye" was written as a tribute to Jeff Buckley, who tragically drowned in Memphis in 1997. "Can't Change Me," the first single, peaked at #5 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and #7 on the Modern Rock Tracks tally.
