    There’s definitely a neo-folk strain in Chris Cornell’s new single, “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart”, and it’s even heightened in the western setting of its video. Jessie Hill directed the clip for the Higher Truth track, which sees Cornell headed for the gallows for an unknown crime.

    His cellmate and the executioner may be familiar faces to some; the former is Eric Roberts, known for roles in TV’s HeroesThe Dark Knight, Runaway Train, and endless other productions. The latter is W. Earl Brown of DeadwoodThere’s Something About Mary, and Meat Loaf: To Hell and Back fame.

    Check out the video below.
