The 1989 recording hears the late singer performing a rendition of “Patience”, which was originally penned by the iconic rock band.

“His birthday seemed the perfect time to share this and celebrate Chris, his voice, music, stories and art,” says a message posted on Cornell’s Facebook page.

The message continues: “A man is not dead while his name is still spoken…and, through his art, an artist’s soul still burns as bright 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 lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the rock bands Soundgarden and Audioslave tragically died by suicide at MGM Grand Detroit following a performance in 2017.

He is survived by his wife Vicky and three children, Toni, Christopher and Lillian.
