The family of the late Chris Cornell have released his final studio album No One Sings Like You Anymore.
Cornell’s last fully completed album, No One Sings Like You Anymore comprises ten covers recorded in 2016. The Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman had picked songs that had inspired him throughout his career, including Harry Nilsson’s “Jump into Fire,” Terry Reid’s “To Be Treated Rite” and Guns N’ Roses’ “Patience.” The last GNR cover was released in July to mark what would have been Cornell’s 56th birthday. No One Sings Like You Anymore also includes a studio cover of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” featuring a full band sound and gorgeous strings.
“This album is so special because it is a complete work of art that Chris created from start to finish,” the singer’s widow Vicky Cornell said in a statement. “His choice of covers provides a personal look into his favorite artists and the songs that touched him. He couldn’t wait to release it. This moment is bittersweet because he should be here doing it himself, but it is with both heartache and joy that we share this special album.”
Cornell’s final release with Soundgarden was 2012’s King Animal, while 2015’s Higher Truth was his final solo album to be released while he was alive.
