Chris Cornell's Widow To Release Never-Before-Heard Songs

NEW YORK (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — More than a year after musician Chris Cornell's suicide, fans will have a chance to hear new music from him.

Cornell's widow Vicky is behind a new album "Chris Cornell," as well as a four-disc box set. Both are set for release November 16.

The first track from both projects is titled "When Bad Does Good." Vicky Cornell says it came from her husband's archives.

The box set will contain 11 unreleased tracks. Both projects will include his solo work as well as music made with Audioslave, Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog.

Vicky Cornell says the album is for his fans and she wanted to remind people of all different aspects of him — "the friend, husband and father, the risk taker and innovator, the poet and artist."

Cornell died in May 2017 at 52 and his death was ruled a suicide.
