New Chris Cornell music is 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 in November 16.
The first track of the two projects is entitled “When the Bad Do Good.” Vicky Cornell says that it came from her husband for the archives.
The set includes 11 unreleased tracks. Both projects will be his solo work as made music with Audioslave, Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog.
Vicky Cornell says the album is for his fans and they wanted to remind people of all the different aspects of him — “he is a friend, husband, and father, the risk-taker and innovator, the poet and the artist.”
Cornell died in May 2017 52 and his death was ruled as a suicide.
