The world is still lamenting Chris Cornell’s surprising and tragic death in May, but there is some good news: new music is coming.
It was revealed that Cornell will be featured on an upcoming Johnny Cash album, “Johnny Cash Forever Words: The Music”.
The album was put together by Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, who was inspired by his father’s book of poetry. In 2016, Carter Cash released a collection of his dad’s poetry called Forever Words: The Unknown Poems, which inspired the idea for the album.
Alongside Cornell, Jewel, T-Bone Burnett, Kacey Musgraves and Brad Paisley are also featured on the record. There is no set release date yet for the album.
In addition to the Johnny Cash album, Cornell also recorded a song for the movie “The Promise”. The music video for the song of the same name was released this month.
All proceeds made from the sales of the song “The Promise” will go to the Chris & Vicky Cornell Foundation, which helps to protect vulnerable children.
