Chris Cornell wasn’t the only Cornell with a penchant for music. Toni Cornell, the 15-year-old daughter of the late Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog vocalist, has unleashed her debut single.

Toni’s new song is named “Far Away Places” and is available now via digital outlets. The song may also be streamed below via YouTube.

Toni wrote “Far Away Places” before her father passed away. The song came to mind when she was 12 years old, and Cornell actually recorded and produced the track in February 2017, just three months before he passed away.

Toni had the chance to perform with her father before he died, too. Back in 2015, Toni performed live for the first time, and that performance was with er father singing a duet of the Bob Marley track “Redemption Song.”

After Chris and his good friend Chester Bennington of Linkin Park passed away, Toni performed a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” with OneRepublic on ABC’s Good Morning America.

Earlier this year, Toni performed her father’s song “Redemption Song” on stage with Ziggy Marley at the Chris Cornell tribute concert. Time will tell if Toni truly follows in her father’s footsteps and continues on the path of having a music career.
