One day after the tragic death of Chris Cornell, some never-before-heard music from the late Soundgarden frontman is slated to be released — with the date of release coincidentally announced months ago.
As reported by SPIN back in January, 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of Cameron Crowe’s grunge-era movie “Singles”, which boasted a soundtrack featuring such Seattle acts as Pearl Jam, Mudhoney and Soundgarden.
To celebrate the anniversary, a special edition of the “Singles” soundtrack will be released on Friday, May 19, including a bonus disc of unreleased material that never made it onto the original soundtrack.
Among the new tracks are several featuring Cornell, who was found dead of an apparent suicide in a hotel room following a Wednesday night show in Detroit.
The bonus tracks include Cornell’s “Nowhere But You,” “Spoon Man,” “Flutter Girl” and “Missing”, in addition to two other tracks, “Ferry Boat #3” and “Score Piece #4”. There will also be an unreleased live track from Soundgarden, “Birth Ritual.”
