Record Store Day will be spread out over three days this fall, and one of the collaborations you'll be able to get your hands (and ears) on is in tributre to Chris Cornell.

 

On September 26th, a two-song tribute to the late Soundgarden frontman will be released for Record Store Day, courtesy of Brandi Carlile and the surviving members of the band.

The twins and I met in the late 90’s in a famous Seattle studio called London Bridge. The guy in the picture with me is Rick Parasher (RIP) and he introduced us. Soundgarden were just gods to us back then. Total pioneers and unreachable to us in every way. We went about making our demos and cleaning the studio when we couldn’t afford the bill never knowing that in November of 2019 we would go back to London Bridge and RECORD TWO SONGS WITH THEM!! @chriscornellofficial was as great as a human singer can get and now he’s an angel. Thank you Kim, Ben, and Matt. I’ll never forget this day for as long as I live.... stay tuned!! -- @soundgarden @themattcameron #kimthayil #benshepherd @londonbridgestudio

"Black Hole Sun" and "Searching With My Good Eye Closed" were recorded at Seattle's own London Bridge Studios, a place where Soundgarden and Brandi Carlile spent a ton of time early in their careers.
