New Chris Cornell songs set for November release
New York – New Chris Cornell music is being released more than a year after his death.
Cornell’s widow Vicky is behind the new album “Chris Cornell,” as well as a four-disc box set. Both will be released Nov. 16.
The first track from both projects is titled “When Bad Does Good.” Vicky Cornell says it came from her husband’s archives.
The box set will contain 11 unreleased tracks. Both projects will include his solo work as well as music made with Audioslave, Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog.
Vicky Cornell says the album is for his fans and she wanted to remind people of all different aspects of him – “he friend, husband and father, the risk taker and innovator, the poet and artist.”
Cornell died in May 18, 2017, at age 52 in room 1136 of the MGM Grand Detroit Casino hotel following a performance at the Fox Theatre. His death was ruled a suicide from asphyxiation with a rubber exercise band.
