Hear Chris Cornell’s unreleased cover of GnR’s ‘Patience’

To mark what would have been his 56th birthday (July 20), the Chris Cornell estate has shared the musician’s previously unreleased cover of Guns N’ Roses’ classic 1989 ballad, “Patience.”

On Cornell’s Facebook page, the cover of “Patience” arrived with a note that read: “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.”
