Chris Cornell’s family has released a posthumous covers album titled “No One Sings Like You Anymore” which the late rocker recorded in 2016. Produced by Brendan O’Brien, Cornell played all the instruments and the track list features handpicked songs from artists who served as Cornell’s musical influences.
This is his last fully completed studio album prior to his death in May 2017.
His widow, Vicky Cornell, said in a press release: “This album is so special because it is a complete work of art that Chris created from start to finish. His choice of covers provides a personal look into his favorite artists and the songs that touched him. He couldn’t wait to release it. This moment is bittersweet because he should be here doing it himself, but it is with both heartache and joy that we share this special album. All of us could use his voice to help heal and lift us this year, especially during the holiday season. I am so proud of him and this stunning record, which to me illustrates why he will always be beloved, honored, and one the greatest voices of our time.”
His daughter Toni Cornell added, “When my dad was making this album it was so fun – I remember waking up in the morning, having breakfast with him and going with him into the studio. We would take our piano lessons there and Christopher would play video games with Brendan and my dad. We got to experience so much with him and have so many amazing memories. I’m really happy to be sharing this album. We love you daddy.”
Although it’s been available digitally since December 11, a vinyl version of the album is slated for release in March 19 and is available for pre-order.
