Multi-platinum rock chart-toppers, DAUGHTRY – known for hit songs September,” “Waiting For Superman,” “It’s Over Now,” “Home,” and 2020’s critically acclaimed rock radio scorcher “World On Fire”celebrates the memory of Chris Cornell by teaming up with SEVENDUST’s Lajon Witherspoon for a reimagining of the hit song “Hunger Strike (Temple of the Dog Cover)” – available here.

Lajon Witherspoon shares:

“What an honor to be a part of this incredible song and to work with my brother Chris Daughtry and the boys. This to me was a musical movement in our community and still to this day in the world.”

Front-man Chis Daughtry provides:

Chris Cornell is one of the defining voices that grabbed me by the heartstrings and made me want to be a rock singer. ‘Hunger Strike’ is one of, if not the most iconic rock duets of our generation.  It’s the whole ’90s wrapped up in one song! Doing this song with Lajon, one of my favorite humans, I’ve had the pleasure of calling friend and brother means the world to me!”

“Hunger Strike” comes after the recent release of new single Heavy Is The Crown – the first single from the band in 2021. With a new video expected to unveil itself for the single soon, the band recently provided its broadcast debut with a performance on The Kelly Clarkson Show here.
