AUSTRALIA'S HOME OF OFFICIAL MERCHANDISE

The estate of the late Chris Cornell has released a previously unheard cover of Guns N Roses classic 'Patience', Although it was probably previously heard by Chris Cornell and the people who would have recorded it. Let's just say it's previously unreleased. 

The estate of the late Chris Cornell has released a previously unheard cover of Guns N Roses classic 'Patience', Although it was probably previously heard by Chris Cornell and the people who would have recorded it. Let's just say it's previously unreleased. 

The song was recorded in 2016 at Los Angeles' Henson Studios as Cornell was working on a solo album. When Cornell was teaching his daughter Toni how ti play the old 1988 ballad by Guns N Roses, Cornell decided to record the song as a tribute to the then Guns N Roses' reunion announcement. The recoding was produced by Brendan O'Brien, who worked on Soundgarden's well loved 1994 album, Superunknown.

On Chris Cornell's Facebook page a post read "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."

The style Cornell plays is a fingerpicked acoustic guitar with a touch of synth and programmed beats. The song is accompanied with  photos of the later singer some captured at his home by photographer and friend Steven Lyon. Chris Cornell's children Toni and Christopher produced the music video clip.

Chris Cornell's window Vicky Cornell wrote in a statement "Listening to it again after so many years it was hauntingly beautiful; it brought it all back in a rush of bittersweet memories."

She added "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."
