Cornell's cover of Guns N' Roses' 'Patience' - taken from his fifth album, 'No One Sings Like You Anymore' - was released as a single on July 20th, 2020, in honour of his 56th birthday.
The track is taken from No One Sings Like You Anymore - the final album by the late Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman, which was released digitally earlier this month by his family and estate.
The 'Watching The Wheels' lyric video features a black, red and white colour scheme, imagery of Cornell from the past and aesthetically sleek graphics to complete the clip.
The album is Cornell’s last fully completed record, and consists of 10 covers recorded back in 2016.
The songs were personally chosen and sequenced by Cornell to celebrate artists that inspired his own work.
The LP feature covers of Carl Hall’s ‘You Don’t Know Nothing About Love’, Prince‘s ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’, Guns N’ Roses‘ ‘Patience’, among others.
“This album is so special because it is a complete work of art that Chris created from start to finish," Cornell’s wife Vicky said of No One Sings Like You Anymore.
“His choice of covers provides a personal look into his favourite 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, honoured, and one the greatest voices of our time.”
Physical editions of No One Sings Like You Anymore will be available on March 17th, 2021.
