A previously unreleased Chris Cornell song dubbed “When Bad Does Good” has received its official premiere, you can find it below. The song leads off an upcoming self-titled posthumous career retrospective set that will be released on November 16th. Cornell performed, recorded and mixed the track himself. Pre-orders for the new retrospective are up at Chriscornell.com. Cornell‘s widow, Vicky, commented of it:

“Since Chris’ sudden passing I have put all my efforts and energy into sharing his music and legacy with his fans from all over the world. I felt we needed to create a special collection to represent all of him – the friend, husband and father, the risk taker and innovator, the poet and artist. His soaring vocals found their way into the hearts and souls of so many. His voice was his vision and his words were his peace. This album is for his fans.”

Notably absent from the set is Cornell‘s music video for the track “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart“, which starred Eric Roberts. That video saw Cornell facing the gallows and was understandably removed from the internet following Cornell‘s suicide back in May of 2017. A lyric video for the track is included instead.

In other news, actor Josh Brolin, who was one of Cornell‘s close friends, commented of “When Bad Does Good” finally seeing a release:

“My dear friend,
They released “When Bad Does Good” today. I remember when you sent it to me and ask what I thought. Hearing your voice again overwhelms me like that first time we met at Hollywood Cafe and you were on stage with just your guitar and a phone next to you and you were having conversations with Jeff Buckley.

It all comes back: all the conversations, the written words back and forth, a small room back stage here and there when we could find the time full of easy conversation and connections. I miss you buddy. Vicky and I have stayed in touch. It was Toni’s birthday, but I’m sure you know that. All is well but hearts still contract and expand with each thought of you or as a song bleeds through the radio. I love you, buddy. Always will. xo JB”
