I’ve already listened to this many times since it first surfaced late last week, but I thought I’d drop it on for a share too. Back in the mid 90s, Johnny Cash covered Soundgarden’s Rusty Cage. Long after Cash passed away, Chris Cornell returned the sentiment and recorded a song with Cash’s own words as lyrics, and the end result gives me chills. Not only is Cornell’s voice stunning on the acoustic track (as expected), but now that we’ve lost both legends, listening to You Never Knew My Mind is also unimaginably heartbreaking. The recording is part of a new compilation named Johnny Cash: Forever Words, on which an array of musicians creates new songs out of unpublished Cash works. The compilation arrives April 6th. Pre-order, here.

OFFICIAL VID: Soundgarden – Live To Rise

That new Soundgarden song from The Avengers soundtrack has a music video! The video for anthemic alternative rock song Live To Rise features footage of the band and clips from The Avengers. Is it just me, or does Chris Cornell look younger and healthier than a few years ago? And guess who’s watching The Avengers on opening night? 😉 Whoa, this song has grown on me since I first heard it. And I gotta love the guitar shredding on the solo. Ahhh. Satisfying. Need a bit of that every now and then.
