Hear Soundgraden frontman Chris Cornell’s cover of Prince’s ‘Nothing Compares to 2′

Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell has unleashed an acoustic cover of the Prince tune “Nothing Compares 2 U” to pay tribute to the late musician. The song is currently streaming via YouTube.

“Prince’s music is the soundtrack to the soulful and beautiful universe he created,” Cornell wrote in the video’s description. “We have all been privileged to be part of that amazing world.”

He added, “I performed his song ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ for the first time a couple months ago. It has a timeless relevance for me and practically everyone I know. Sadly, now his own lyrics in this song could not be more relevant than at this moment, and I sing them now in reverence as I pay tribute to this unequaled artist who has given all of our lives so much inspiration and made the world so much more interesting.”

Prince passed away on Thursday (April 21) at the age of 57.
