Blackhole Son Chris Cornell

Soundgarden lead singer, Chris Cornell, who holds a special place in our teenage hearts for “Blackhole Son,” has released “The Keeper” off the soundtrack from the movie Machine Gun Preacher. For the next 24 hours the track is available for donate-to-download with proceeds going to the Machine Gun Preacher Organization, which helps provide a safe haven for the multitudes of children and adults fleeing enslavement by the brutal Lord’s Resistance Army in Northern Uganda and Southern Sudan. On “The Keeper” Cornell softly sings “Beauty and truth collide where love meets genocide, where laughter meets fear, confusion all around while I try to feed these mouths” as he gently shifts between notes on an acoustic guitar. It’s nothing like Soundgarden, but much more comparable to Eddie Vedder’s work on Into The Wild. Please donate, help, and enjoy.
