Premiere\\ CHRIS CORNELL: 'The Keeper' Video Released


SOUNDGARDEN/ex-AUDIOSLAVE singer Chris Cornell's video for his new song "The Keeper" can be seen below. The clip was helmed by Isaac Rentz (CAGE THE ELEPHANT, MANCHESTER ORCHESTRA) and servers as the lead single from the soundtrack to the movie "Machine Gun Preacher".

Based on a true story, "Machine Gun Preacher" 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.

In a recent interview with ARTISTdirect, Cornell stated about "The Keeper", "I think the song really sticks with the idea of imagining that Sam Childers is singing it. What is he singing? It's a sort of testimonial to the kids he puts his life on the line for. In that testimonial, the singer is really saying, 'I'm not Moses. I'm not this grandiose savior to be worshipped. I'm just a guy who has faults, and I know it as much as anybody.' However, this person who does have faults and who isn't Moses is going to be here until he dies doing what he does for others. That was my way of being able to really get into the song without saying that I lived it because I haven't."
