Chris Cornell Retrospective Album and Box Set Announced, Stream Previously Unreleased Track 'When Bad Does Good'
Chris Cornell’s career will be celebrated with the release of an album and retrospective box set later this year, featuring the late rocker’s contributions with Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog and solo cuts.
A new 17-track self-titled album and a limited edition 62-track box set is in the works, the Chris Cornell Estate has announced. Both are set for release Nov. 16 and will feature the new single “When Bad Does Good,” which can be heard below.
The track was produced, recorded, and mixed by Cornell and was unearthed from the grunge icon's recordings archive. Cornell's widow Vicky is behind the new album Chris Cornell, which will feature two unreleased tracks, and the four-disc box set, which will contain 11 unreleased tracks.
“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,” explains Vicky in a statement. 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.”
Chris Cornell’s fourth and final solo studio album, Higher Truth, was released in September 2015, less than two years before the vocalist's untimely death, aged 52.
