This Friday, a career-spanning collection of Chris Cornell’s work will also be released.

Simply titled Chris Cornell, the compilation was brought together by Cornell’s widow Vicky and artists who worked with the vocalist.

It’ll arrive on standard formats along with a limited-edition Deluxe Box Set and a Super Deluxe Box Set – both will include a total of 11 previously unreleased tracks.
