Chris Cornell Jr., the son of Chris Cornell, will star in the music video for the musician’s posthumous single “When Bad Does Good.”
The video comes out Friday, Nov. 16, alongisde a 64-song collection of unreleased material.
Then, in September, details emerged about a posthumous record with previously unreleased material. The project has since been confirmed as a 64-song collection of previously unheard material curated by Cornell’s wife Vicky, as Consequence of Sound notes.
“When Bad Does Good” is one of the tracks in the set and the music video is coming out Friday, Nov. 16, alongside the new album.
“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,” Vicky wrote about the song and the collection. “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.”

Chris Cornell statue
Seattle at the Museum of Pop Culture unveiled a statue honoring Cornell last month. The ceremony was initially planned for September but moved to Oct. 7 following “overwhelming response from the Seattle community and fans,” according to Vicky.
Vicky commissioned and donated the statue created by artist Nick Marras to MoPOP. It shows Cornell in a signature pose with his boots, dog tag and long hair.
“As an artist, my husband was not only one of the greatest voices in rock history but also one of the greatest and most prolific poets of his time—his contribution to music birthed a movement that would leave an indelible mark on popular music forever,” Vicky says. “It only makes sense that I donate this statue to MoPop with their dedication to the ideas and risk-taking that fuel contemporary popular culture.”
The widow added the museum was the “perfect place” for people to check out the museum and pay homage.
“MoPOP serves to celebrate the Seattle music scene and the luminaries who have emerged from the Northwest. Chris was a key figure who has made a lasting impact on generations worldwide,” Jasen Emmons, the artistic director of MoPOP, says.
