A teaser for the album is available below.

In a 2016 interview with The Trap Set, Cameron compared working with SOUNDGARDEN to PEARL JAM, saying: "It's just different band dynamics in general... I think my role in SOUNDGARDEN is a little bit more of a musical director role, whereas in PEARL JAM it's more of a supporting in the rhythm section kind of role. I think the collaboration I have in SOUNDGARDEN is bigger in the creative realm, but I feel very fortunate to be in two really fantastic bands."

The Pulse Of Radio asked Cameron a while back if he altered his style for either band. "I don't think I do," he said. "I mean, I'm just really trying to play my role in each group. I definitely feel like I support the vocal in both groups. The music around the vocal is a little bit different. But that's the way I've always considered my drumming, is vocal-influenced. I've been lucky enough to play with two of the best singers in modern day history, so I think that's always sort of been my strength as a drummer."

Asked about playing in two of the most successful and influential rock groups of the past twenty-five years, Cameron told The Trap Set: "I totally earned it, I worked my tail off for it, but I think there's always an element of luck in success in the music industry, for sure."

Cameron was inducted with PEARL JAM into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this past April.

SOUNDGARDEN has been eligible for induction since 2012 but has yet to be nominated.
