An eponymous Chris Cornell album collecting previously unreleased music has been announced.
It’s been over a year since the world lost one of its most gifted musicians in Cornell. But to ensure his legacy lives on, his widow Vicky has curated an album that will feature his work from his time with Temple of the Dog, Audioslave, Soundgarden, as well as some of his solo ventures.

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……………… Thank you #jeffament for the beautiful art work , love and support . Thank you to everyone who helped make this so special.

The record’s liner notes were contributed by Cornell’s friends and former bandmates, including Kim Thayill and Matt Cameron of Soundgarden, Tom Morello of Audioslave, Mike McCready of Temple of the Dog, and Brendan O’Brien, who served as the album’s producer.
The 64-song tracklist also features 11 previously unheard tracks, including a live cover of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U,” and an original titled “When Bad Does Good,” which was released recently as a teaser. Check it out here:
