The widow of singer Chris Cornell and his former bandmates in Soundgarden say they have resolved her lawsuit against them.

The agreement announced Monday clears the way for the release of the band's final recordings more than five years after his death.

Vicky Cornell sued Soundgarden in 2019 over royalties from recordings her husband made that she said were intended to be a solo project, but the band contended were part of their partnership.

In a joint statement, the two sides say the deal will allow fans of the famed Seattle band to hear the final songs they were working on before Cornell's 2017 death.
