Soundgardenin Chris Cornellin uran viimeiseksi jäänyt musiikkivideo julki

Hiljattain ajasta ikuisuuteen siirtyneen Soundgardenin laulajan Chris Cornellin uran viimeiseksi jääneestä kappaleesta ”The Promise” on nyt julkaistu musiikkivideo. Musiikkivideon on ohjannut Meiert Avis (Audioslave, U2) yhteistyössä Stefan Smithin (Madonna, Sting) ja se on kuvattu Brooklynissa New Yorkissa vain hieman ennen Cornellin kuolemaa.

Videon teossa mukana ollut ja ”The Promise” -kappaletta tuottamassa ollut Eric Esrailian on kertonut videosta seuraavaa:

”Although it is bittersweet because Chris filmed his performance in Brooklyn, New York shortly before his passing, he wanted his video to be released on World Refugee Day, and he was passionate about helping people through this project. True to Chris’s charitable spirit, he made a commitment to donate all of his proceeds from ’The Promise’ to support refugees and children, and to further the conversation about the refugee crisis the world continues to endure.”

Cornell itse kuvaili ”The Promise” -kappalettaan seuraavasti:

”’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 U.S., 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.”
