Chris Cornell's final music video has been released.

The Promise song was written for the 2016 film of the same name which charted a love triangle unfolding in the wake of the Armenian genocide.

And the accompanying video, released just one month after the untimely death of the Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman, shows real footage of refugees fleeing warn torn cities across Libya, Syria and other countries.

It's hugely moving but, speaking to Rolling Stone, the video's director Meiert Avis revealed that while the video was being edited Cornell had asked him to make it less depressing and more optimistic.
