No One Sings Like You Anymore CD

“No One Sings Like You Anymore” is Chris Cornell’s handpicked collection of 10 cover songs, which he personally selected and sequenced to celebrate artists and songs that inspired him, including John Lennon’s “Watching The Wheels,” “Get It While You Can,” popularized by Janis Joplin, a new recording of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U,” Ghostland Observatory’s “Sad Sad City,” Harry Nilsson’s “Jump Into The Fire,” Carl Hall’s “You Don’t Know Nothing About Love,” Electric Light Orchestra’s “Showdown,” Terry Reid’s “To Be Treated Rite” and two songs currently available as digital singles, Lorraine Ellison’s “Stay With Me Baby” (originally released for HBO’s show Vinyl) and Chris’s 2020 chart topping hit “Patience” originally recorded by Guns N’ Roses.

Chris Cornell‘s widow Vicky Cornell, and his estate, surprise-released an album of covers, “This album is so special because it is a complete work of art that Chris created from start to finish,” Vicky says about No One Sings Like You. “His choice of covers provides a personal look into his favourite artists and the songs that touched him. He couldn’t wait to release it. This moment is bittersweet because he should be here doing it himself, but it is with both heartache and joy that we share this special album. All of us could use his voice to help heal and lift us this year, especially during the holiday season. I am so proud of him and this stunning record, which to me illustrates why he will always be beloved, honoured, and one the greatest voices of our time.”

“When my dad was making this album, it was so fun – I remember waking up in the morning, having breakfast with him and going with him into the studio,” Cornell’s daughter Toni says. “We would take our piano lessons there, and Christopher would play video games with Brendan and my dad. We got to experience so much with him and have so many amazing memories. I’m really happy to be sharing this album. We love you, daddy,”

“We had so much fun in the studio during this time,” Cornell’s son Christopher says, “and on days off we’d go to Tree People and hike around there. We would also play hide and go seek inside the Beverly Hills Hotel and when security would show up they would think it was so funny that my dad was running through fire escapes with us. For me this album represents who my dad was. I’m really proud of him and his work. I hope you all love this record as much as I do.”

‘No One Sings Like You Anymore’ is a selection of cover versions done by Chris Cornell, this is out 19th March.
