Chris Cornell‘s final music video, “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart“, from his final solo album Higher Truth, which was released in 2015, has been removed from YouTube.
The music video was released on September 11 2015.Cornell and Eric Roberts play prisoners about to be hanged; as an onlooker (Elena Satine) distracts the hangman, Cornell‘s noose is sabotaged by the executioner’s assistant so he survives his hanging, and is forced into marriage with the woman who sabotaged his hanging. The video ends with the other prisoner about to be hanged and the onlooker about to play her part again.
