The first short clip of the upcoming new Chris Cornell single “When Bad Does Good” has been released. The song will be released in full on September 21st. It is the lead single off of Cornell’s career retrospective four disc set Chris Cornell, set for release on November 16th. Click here for the tracklisting.
It’s unclear when exactly “When Bad Does Good” was recorded. Cornell’s final extensive solo recording sessions were for Higher Truth in 2015 with producer Brendan O’Brien, and we have yet to hear any possible unreleased material from those sessions. Cornell was also in the early stages of working on a covers album with O’Brien at the time of his death, and he had recorded “The Promise” as the final song released during his lifetime.
Chris Cornell posters promoting his upcoming self-titled career retrospective album Chris Cornell and new single “When Bad Does Good” have been put up in Los Angeles and New York. Fans have taken photos of the posters located in Hollywood, Santa Monica, and the SoHo neighborhood of New York.
Chris Cornell will be released on November 16th, and it features over 60 songs spanning his career with Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Audioslave, and his solo work. It is the first new Chris Cornell release since his death in May 2017.
