A new video for a posthumous song by Chris Cornell has been shared featuring the late Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman’s son Christopher Cornell Jr.
In the clip for the track ‘When Bad Does Good’, which you can watch below, Cornell Jr. portrays a younger version of his father as a paper boy in Seattle. Various lyrics and mementos from the late frontman’s career are also interspersed throughout the video.
It is one of 11 previously unreleased tracks.
“For me this video represents my dad and all the art he created throughout his life and what his music meant then and what it means now, not just to me and my family but the city of Seattle and all of his fans,” Cornell Jr. said in a statement.
The track features on a self-titled box set dedicated to the late singer, which was released today (November 16) and includes his work with Soundgarden, Temple Of The Dog and Audioslave as well as his own solo work.
The 64-track release was curated by Cornell’s wife, Vicky, in collaboration with his former bandmates and friends. You can listen to the collection on Spotify below.
Cornell was found dead in his hotel room on May 17, 2017 aged 52. A toxicology report revealed that various prescription drugs were in his system at the time of his death.
According to a recent TMZ report, Vickey Cornell and her two children are suing Dr. Robert Koblin for malpractice.
She claims that he prescribed 940 doses of the anti-anxiety drug Lorazepam (aka Ativan) as well as Oxycodone during the last 20 months of Cornell’s life without examining the singer.
The lawsuit also claims that Cornell was known as an “addiction-prone individual.” Vicky Cornell argues that despite knowing this, the doctor took no steps to protect him, adding that Cornell’s therapist for his substance abuse referred him to Dr. Koblin.
