There truly was no one like Chris Cornell, and today, Dec. 11, the family of the late vocalist of Soundgarden and Audioslave releases No One Sings Like You Anymore, a collection of ten covers that Cornell recorded in 2016 — making it the final album he completed prior to his tragic death in 2017.

The album features the dynamic singer giving his own spin on songs made famous by Harry Nilsson (“Jump Into the Fire”), Electric Light Orchestra (“Showdown”), Prince (“Nothing Compares 2 U”), Terry Reid’s “To Be Treated Rite” and more.

It also includes his cover of Guns N’ Roses’ “Patience,” which was released in July for his 56th birthday:

Said Vicky Cornell, Chris Cornell’s widow, of the new collection (via Stereogum):

This album is so special because it is a complete work of art that Chris created from start to finish. His choice of covers provides a personal look into his favorite artists and the songs that touched him. He couldn’t wait to release it. This moment is bittersweet because he should be here doing it himself, but it is with both heartache and joy that we share this special album. All of us could use his voice to help heal and lift us this year, especially during the holiday season. I am so proud of him and this stunning record, which to me illustrates why he will always be beloved, honored, and one the greatest voices of our time.

Toni Cornell, his daughter, offered this regarding her father’s new music:

When my dad was making this album, it was so fun — I remember waking up in the morning, having breakfast with him and going with him into the studio. We would take our piano lessons there, and Christopher would play video games with Brendan and my dad. We got to experience so much with him and have so many amazing memories. I’m really happy to be sharing this album. We love you, daddy.

And son, Christopher:

We had so much fun in the studio during this time, and on days off we’d go to Tree People and hike around there. We would also play hide and go seek inside the Beverly Hills Hotel and when security would show up they would think it was so funny that my dad was running through fire escapes with us. For me this album represents who my dad was. I’m really proud of him and his work. I hope you all love this record as much as I do.
