Soundgarden‘s Chris Cornell has shared the following cover he recorded of Prince‘s “Nothing Compares 2 U“—which was later popularized by Sinéad O’Connor. The song arrived alongside the following tribute Cornell penned for Prince, who passed away yesterday, April 21st, at the age of 57.

Prince’s music is the soundtrack to the soulful and beautiful universe he created, and we have all been privileged to be part of that amazing world.

I performed his song “Nothing Compares 2 U” for the first time a couple months ago. It has a timeless relevance for me and practically everyone I know.

Sadly, now his own lyrics in this song could not be more relevant than at this moment, and I sing them now in reverence as I pay tribute to this unequaled artist who has given all of our lives so much inspiration and made the world so much more interesting.

We will miss you Prince!!!”
