A car chase for the ages with Danger Mouse, Big Boi and Run The Jewels in this tie-in for new film Baby Driver (and boasting a chance for the kids to discover the greatness of the mighty Blues Exposion).
Written and recorded for 2016 film The Promise, the video for this acoustic Chris Cornell track supports Refugee causes, with donated footage from Academy Award nominated director Evgeny Afineesvky (HBO's Cries from Syria), UNESCO Prize for Peace Recipient SOS Méditerranée, Freshwater Films (Ross Kemp's Libya's Migrant Hell), Keo Films (Exodus: Our Journey To Europe), Nazik Armenakyan (Survivors), Human Rights Watch, Refugee Rescue, and Nobel Peace Prize Recipient Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).
Mixed in with that is a tastefully captured performance directed by Meiert Avis in Brooklyn, plus a graceful lyric treatment.
Eric Esraillian, producer of The Promise: "Chris Cornell was not only a dear family friend for many years, but he was also a once-in-a generation talent who is missed more than words can convey. It was such an honor to collaborate and partner on The Promise over the year. "His music and lyrics will not only shine a light on the Armenian Genocide and the human rights crises of modern times, but they will also inspire people and provide hope for years to come.
Although it is bittersweet because Chris filmed his performance in Brooklyn, NY 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."
