Sevendust have released new music in the first time since 2018, and it's a cover of Soundgarden's classic "The Day I Tried To Live".

The lyric video sees frontman Lajon Witherspoon display his full vocal range, and stays pretty true to the original tune.

The band say they decided to release a cover of the 1994 song after seeing the recent events of the world unfold, feeling that the message is now more relevant than ever.

Lajon Witherspoon tells Loudwire:

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.
