SEVENDUST Unveil Cover Of SOUNDGARDEN’s “The Day I Tried To Live”

SEVENDUST is back with their newest single, a cover of Soundgarden’s “The Day I Tried to Live.”

Watch the Lyric Video below

A press release says that “The band chose the song to return to the airwaves with after seeing the societal changes happening around the globe. The lyrical message of learning to live a better life is as relevant today as they were when the song was first released in 1994.”

Frontman Lajon Witherspoon said about the track:

“Soundgarden is such an important band to all of us in Sevendust and this love for them goes all the way back to when we were starting. We discussed trying to do one of their songs and our producer Elvis [Baskette] suggested ‘The Day I Tried To Live.’ I would have been fine with any of those songs personally. When I first heard it, I thought the lyrics were timeless. The lyrics are about trying to experience new things and change the way you live, and we see examples of that every day with what is happening around the world. To have the chance to cover this song and release it is so special to all of us. Thank you, Chris Cornell and Soundgarden.”
