Chris Cornell’s memory is being honored by his teen daughter.
A ballad that the late Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman produced for his daughter Toni — when she was just 12 — is now being released.
“Far Away Places” was written by Toni three years ago, and was one of the last songs that Cornell recorded before his death in May 2017.

The song was released on iTunes on Thursday and is available on other streaming services.
It is featured in a short film, also titled “Far Away Places,” by Tatiana Shanks, a family friend. The movie has been featured in international film festivals, and the song itself has won awards at various film festivals.

Proceeds from the single’s sales will be donated to The New York Society For the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
Cornell’s widow, Vicki, also revealed last September that she was releasing a new album titled “Chris Cornell” as well as a four-disc box set on November 16. The box set will contain 11 unreleased tracks. Both projects will include his solo work as well as music made with Audioslave, Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog.

Cornell died at 52 years old and his death was ruled a suicide.
