Chris Cornell’s Previously Unreleased Song ‘When Bad Does Good’ Is Here

Written by Laura English on September 21, 2018

A previously unreleased Chris Cornell song called ‘When Bad Does Good’ has been released ahead of a new 17-track self-titled compilation album, which will feature 11 previously unheard songs from the late Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman.

The album is a collection of Cornell’s contributions to Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog and Audioslave, as well as cuts from his solo career.

Our first taste from the record, ‘When Bad Does Good’ (which you can stream below), was produced, recorded and mixed by Cornell himself.

The song, which was apparently a favourite of Cornell’s and had been sitting in his personal archive, came to light after his longtime friend Josh Brolin reminded Cornell’s wife Vicky about the song’s existence.

Vicky Cornell ended up working with her husband’s bandmates to put together a collection of material from Chris’ career, and then took the selection to producers Brendan O’Brien and Jeff Ament.

“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,” Vicky says.

“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.”

Chris Cornell’s final solo album, Higher Truth, was released in 2015.

His posthumous compilation album is set for release on Friday, 16th November, and is available for pre-order here, with a special 64-track limited edition version also available.

Peep the full tracklists and cover art for each version of the album, below.
