Chris Cornell (Soundgarden) Premieres New Song “The Promise”

Chris Cornell (Soundgarden) has premiered a new solo track titled “The Promise.” This song was written for the film of the same name. The movie, which Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac, will hit theatres on April 21. Proceeds from the song will go towards International Rescue Committee.

Cornell said the following:

“The film and plot are your band mates and the song has to be true to the story and the characters in it. ‘The Promise‘ to me is mainly about paying homage to those we lost in the Armenian Genocide, but it’s also about shining a light on more recent atrocities. The same methods used in the Armenian genocide were used to carry out crimes against humanity in Bosnia, Darfur, Rwanda and right now in Syria on multiple fronts, contributing to a massive global refugee crisis.

Unfortunately, the words ‘never again’ seem like just words when we recall these mass executions of the twentieth century, as well as renewed racism and prejudice around the world. Even in the US, the warning signs – isolating groups based on race and religion – are evident. We really need to tell these stories and keep telling them in as many different ways as we can. As humans, we have a tremendous capacity to trudge ahead in our lives and not look at the difficult and challenging moments… but I think it’s important.

Educating ourselves on the past is the best way to understand the present and avoid future atrocities by understanding and intervening. We must educate and stand as one to combat this fear and violence, and as citizens of the world, work to protect each other’s human rights.”

On another note, the movie will also feature a piece composed by System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian and the Authentic Light Orchestra.
