Today (20th) would have been Chris Cornell’s 56th birthday. To honor the late Soundgarden/Audioslave singer’s life, his family shared a previously unreleased song of his covering Guns N’ Roses’ “Patience.” Blabbermouth reports the track was produced by Brendan O’Brien and was reportedly completed a few months before Cornell died in May 2017.
His family issued the following statement on Cornell’s Facebook:
“His birthday seemed the perfect time to share this and celebrate Chris, his voice, music, stories and art. It is true a man is not dead while his name is still spoken…and, through his art, an artist’s soul still burns just as bright as ever upon all those that look up to him and his memory. Releasing music that was special to Chris keeps a part of him here with us- his heart and his soul. His love and his legacy.”
