Chris Cornell’s Daughter Releases Duet Tribute Recorded “A Few Months Before He Died” – “Nothing Compares 2 U” 2018

Chris Cornell’s daughter, Toni, paid tribute to her late father on Father’s Day by posting a duet of “Nothing Compares 2 U,” which was recorded a few months prior to the Soundgarden frontman’s death.  The song has been embedded below.  Toni also attached the following message:

Toni Cornell:
“Daddy, I love you and miss you so much.  You were the best father anyone could ask for.  Our relationship was so special, and you were always there for me.  You gave me courage when I didn’t have any.  You believed in me when I didn’t.  I miss your love everyday.  Recording this song with you was a special and amazing experience I wish I could repeat 100 times over and I know you would too.  Happy Father’s Day daddy, nothing compares to you.”

About the song, Chris Cornell’s widow, Vicky, explained:
“I’m so proud of my baby girl for having the courage to share this.  July 19, last year she found it in her daddy’s studio files-they recorded it a few months before he died.  You never know what life brings and how we live each day is what’s most important.”

Although the song was popularized by singer Sinéad O’Connor, “Nothing Compares 2 U” was actually written by Prince, originally for one of his side projects, The Family.
