Toni Cornell has released her first-ever single titled “Far Away Places.” The song was produced and recorded by the 15-year-old’s father, Chris Cornell, at their home studio in Miami in February 2017, three months before he died by suicide at 52.
“Far Away Places” serves as the musical centerpiece of a short film by the same name that is currently touring the festival circuit. The short tells the story of a boy from Los Angeles who visits relatives in Tahiti and discovers a younger cousin being abused.
Proceeds from the song will be donated to the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. Last we heard from Toni, she released a duet cover of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” with her dad on Father’s Day last year.
