Haunting lyrics from one of Chris Cornell’s final recordings have surfaced. Cornell recorded “You Never Knew My Mind” created around unreleased Johnny Cash lyrics for a new album due out this April.
Lyrics for the song read, “I can feel the way you’re changing, but I can’t change the way you’re feeling/ You’re special, you are different, you are only one of a kind.” The song will be featured on the album, “Johnny Cash: Forever Words” co-produced by his son John Carter Cash.
“I picked the artists who are most connected to my father, who had a personal story that was connected with Dad,” says John Carter. “It became an exciting endeavor to go through these works, to put them together and present them to different people who could finish them in a way that I believed that Dad would have wanted.”
The album will be released April 6th. You can check out unseen footage from Chris Cornell’s recording below.
