Chris Cornell Estate announces first release since the passing of the late Seattle singer/songwriter

Today (September 21) The Chris Cornell Estate and UME have announced the first release since the passing of the late Seattle singer/songwriter in 2017. Available on November 16, the album titled Chris Cornell will be released in both a 17-track and a 64-track limited-edition deluxe box set (11 of them unreleased). The project was overseen by Cornell’s wife, Vicky Cornell.

Vicky Cornell worked extensively with the singer’s bandmates and friends to compile a collection of material celebrating his expansive career, with selections culled from the catalogues of Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog and Audioslave as well as songs from his solo career. Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament created the packaging for Chris Cornell.  

The first unreleased track from the collection, When Bad Does Good, was produced, recorded, and mixed by Cornell and was found in his personal recordings archive.

Speaking about the project, Vicky Cornell said: “Since Chris’ sudden passing I have put all my efforts and energy into sharing his music and legacy with his fans from all over the world. I felt we needed to create a special collection to represent all of him - the friend, husband and father, the risk taker and innovator, the poet and artist.  His soaring vocals found their way into the hearts and souls of so many. His voice was his vision and his words were his peace. This album is for his fans.”
