VIDEO: Chris Cornell – The Keeper

Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell has issued the video for his latest solo effort, “The Keeper.”

The song is the lead track on the original motion picture soundtrack for the forthcoming movie "Machine Gun Preacher," now playing in select US theatres.

Based on a true story, the movie 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.

On his website, recently, for a period of 24 hours, Cornell offered the song for donations that will go directly to Sam Childer's Angels Of East Africa charity.

Cornell played the song live on The Late Show with David Letterman last week; check that footage out here.
