Listen to unreleased Chris Cornell song 'When Bad Does Good'

A previously unheard Chris Cornell song called ‘When Bad Does Good’ has premiered today ahead of the release of a career-spanning posthumous album and box set.

The first musical output since Chris’s death in May 2017, the self-titled ‘Chris Cornell’ is being released on Friday 16th November by the singer’s wife, Vicky Cornell, on behalf of The Chris Cornell Estate.

Spanning Chris’s career with Soundgarden, Audioslave, Temple of the Dog and as a solo artist, the standard 17-song edition of ‘Chris Cornell’ features two previously unreleased recordings - a poignant cover of Prince’s ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ recorded at US radio station at Sirius XM, and ‘When Bad Does Good.’

Produced, recorded, and mixed by Chris, ‘When Bad Does Good’ was found in his personal recordings archive. The track was a favourite of his and it wasn’t until friend Josh Brolin, reminded Vicky of the unreleased song, that she decided to share it with his fans.


Vicky Cornell says: “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.”

Alongside the standard edition, there is a limited-edition 4CD Deluxe box set featuring 64 tracks, including 11 unreleased songs.

This version is housed in a jewel case with a limited-edition custom die-cut slipcase that showcases Seattle with tree-line graphics on the front and other various cities he lived in throughout his life on the back, a 32-page booklet with many unreleased photos, and liner notes from bandmates and colleagues Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron, Tom Morello, Mike McCready, and Brendan O’Brien.

The 180g 2LP edition comes in a gatefold jacket with similar limited-edition slipcase graphics, a 12-page booklet, and the aforementioned liner notes, while the 4CD limited-edition box boasts a further expanded 54-page booklet.

For fans with deeper pockets, there is also a limited-edition Super Deluxe 4CD, 1DVD, and 180-gram 7LP box set.

The Super Deluxe edition holds 88 tracks — 64 songs plus 24 videos, with 13 entries (11 audio + 2 video) previously unreleased overall. Also included in the Super Deluxe box are a 66-page hardcover photo book wrapped in linen with a red foil signature cover, three artist lithos, three photochromatic lithos inspired by Cornell’s lyrical fascination about the sun (images are brought to life by holding under direct sunlight), a turntable mat, a microfiber vinyl cleaning cloth, and a 36x48-inch wall poster.
