Chris Cornell would’ve celebrated his 56th birthday today (July 20.) In honor of the late Soundgarden frontman, his estate released this previously unreleased cover of Guns N’ Roses’ “Patience.”

A statement from his Facebook page on the song reads, “His birthday seemed the perfect time to share this and celebrate Chris, his voice, music, stories and art. It is true a man is not dead while his name is still spoken…and, through his art, an artist’s soul still burns just as bright as ever upon all those that look up to him and his memory. Releasing music that was special to Chris keeps a part of him here with us- his heart and his soul. His love and his legacy.”

Cornell’s cover of “Patience” is now available for streaming and download on all major digital platforms.
