On November 18, Chris Cornell will get the kind of sprawling, career-spanning box set that befits an artist of his talent and stature. The self-titled collection is comprised of four-discs and collects material from every phase of his musical life, from Soundgarden, Temple Of The Dog, Audioslave, and as a solo artist. It also comes with 11 previously unreleased songs, including one titled “When Bad Does Good” that his estate has decided to share today.

The new song is vintage Cornell. Propelled by a swirling organ melody, Chris dominates the track with his otherworldly voice, pushing it into places that are absolutely spellbinding. Chris’s wife Vicky worked with many of Chris’ friends and contemporaries to curate the collection, and it was apparently the actor Josh Brolin who urged her to include “When Bad Does Good.”

“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,” his wife Vicky said in a statement. “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.”
