Every now and again, Chris Cornell writes a song he plays live but doesn’t include on any of his studio albums. One such track is ‘Cleaning My Gun,’ a tune that will finally get a proper release next month, when the Soundgarden frontman drops ‘Songbook,’ a solo live acoustic album.

Earlier today, Cornell debuted ‘Cleaning My Gun’ on Stereogum. Before launching into the somber ballad, the singer offers a quickie version of the story behind the lyrics.

“It’s about a guy who loses the love of his life and decides to maybe take himself out,” Cornell tells the audience. “Or at least he’s thinking about it. He’s writing a song is what he’s doing.”
