Chris Cornell 's 15-year-old daughter Toni Cornell has released a new song called "Far Away Places" . According to Rolling Stone , the track was written by Toni when she was 12 years old and it was recorded at Chris 's home studio in Miami in February 2017, just three months before the SOUNDGARDEN singer's death. Chris produced the song, which is featured in the short film "Far Away Places" .
Proceeds from the track's sale on digital music services will be donated to the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children .
In August 2017, Toni Cornell joined the band ONEREPUBLIC onstage on ABC 's "Good Morning America" to perform the Leonard Cohen song "Hallelujah" . The performance was a celebration the lives of Chris Cornell and late LINKIN PARK frontman Chester Bennington , both of whom died within months of each other.
Chris Cornell was found hanged in his room at the MGM Grand Detroit hotel in May 2017, following a SOUNDGARDEN show at the city's Fox Theatre. His body was found soon after he had spoken with a "slurred" voice to his wife, Vicky Cornell , by phone. The death was ruled a suicide.
But his family has questioned the medical examiner's ruling, saying that he had a prescription for Ativan and that a higher than recommended dosage may have caused him to experience suicidal thoughts.
