Euphoria Morning is the first solo studio album released by Americanmarker musician Chris Cornell. It was released on September 21, 1999 through Interscope Records. Euphoria Morning sold over 75,000 copies in its first week of release and eventually sold 343,000 copies in the U.S. alone. While a large success critically, it did not sell nearly as well as Cornell's albums with Soundgarden. It is Cornell's only album between the split of Soundgarden until he joined members of Rage Against the Machine in forming Audioslave.


Recording history

In 1998, Cornell began working on material for a solo album on which he collaborated with Alain Johannes and Natasha Shneider of the band Eleven. "Flutter Girl" was an outtake from Superunknown, the 1994 Soundgarden album. During his 2007 solo tour, Cornell stated that "Wave Goodbye" was written as a tribute to Jeff Buckley, who drowned in 1997.

Musical style

It has been noted that Euphoria Morning is influenced by Jeff Buckley's songwriting and distinctive vocal style.


The album proved commercially unsuccessful although the album's single "Can't Change Me" was nominated for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance at the 2000 Grammy Awards. Euphoria Morning includes "Wave Goodbye", Cornell's tribute to his late friend Jeff Buckley. He also contributed the song "Sunshower" (a bonus track on the Japanesemarker release of Euphoria Morning) to the soundtrack of the 1998 film, Great Expectations, and a reworked version of the track "Mission", retitled "Mission 2000", was used on the soundtrack to the 2000 film, Mission: Impossible II. In 2000, Cornell embarked on a tour in support of the album.
