Chris Cornell’s Final Music Video For “The Promise” Released

Before his untimely death, Chris Cornell wrote a song for the feature film, The Promise, and today the official video has been released online. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, producer Eric Esrailian explained why he still wanted the video to see the light of day, “Although it is bittersweet because Chris filmed his performance in Brooklyn, New York shortly before his passing, he wanted his video to be released on World Refugee Day, and he was passionate about helping people through this project. True to Chris’s charitable spirit, he made a commitment to donate all of his proceeds from ‘The Promise’ to support refugees and children, and to further the conversation about the refugee crisis the world continues to endure. His music and lyrics will not only shine a light on the Armenian Genocide and the human rights crisis of modern times, but they will also inspire people and provide hope for years to come.

He went on the add, “I hope the video provides a wider human context for the tragedy of his death. I hope it creates something with purpose, because Chris had purpose, and to lose your purpose is a terrible thing.

‘The Promise’ is available on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify.
