Donate To Download CHRIS CORNELL's New Song

SOUNDGARDEN/ex-AUDIOSLAVE singer Chris Cornell has announced the release of his new song "The Keeper", lead track on the original motion picture soundtrack for forthcoming movie "Machine Gun Preacher". Based on a true story, the movie is directed by Marc Forster ("Finding Neverland", "Monster's Ball") and stars Gerard Butler ("300", "The Phantom Of The Opera") as Sam Childers, a former drug-dealing criminal who finds faith leading him on a path to East Africa. Shocked by the mayhem in Sudan, Childers becomes a crusader for hundreds of refugee children fleeing death and enslavement.

For 24 hours exclusively on ChrisCornell.com, all proceeds from the donations generated will go directly to Sam Childer's Angels Of East Africa charity. On Tuesday, August 30, the song will be available for sale on iTunes and the full soundtrack album is released September 20. "Machine Gun Preacher" hits select U.S. theatres on September 23.
