Rock & Roll icon and two-time Grammy winner Tom Morello has today released a brand-new single from his recently announced album The Atlas Underground Fire, out October 15th. The original track, “Driving To Texas” featuring Phantogram is available HERE.
“I’d worked with Josh from Phantogram on my first Atlas Underground album and I was thrilled when he and Sarah reached out about collaborating on this record. This song is creepy as hell – a dark journey, a struggle for a tortured soul. The guitar solo needed to feel like a vengeful angel who has come down to decide the fate of the protagonist. Will they descend into the abyss or will they find redemption? “Driving To Texas,” really shows the breadth of the music you’ll hear on this record. Sarah has one of the most haunting and beautiful voices of anyone singing today, and Josh’s production is stylistically so fresh and eerie,” said Tom Morello.
Morello – co-founder of Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave and Prophets of Rage – will release his forthcoming album The Atlas Underground Fire on October 15 via Mom + Pop Music. The record is available for pre-order now HERE. The album’s first single, available HERE, was the classic rock AC/DC rock anthem “Highway to Hell” featuring Morello, Bruce Springsteen and Eddie Vedder which debuted at #1 on Classic Rock radio. Featuring an amazing cast of collaborators including Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, Chris Stapleton, Mike Posner, Damian Marley and more, Morello’s remarkable guitar playing will be on full display, taking the instrument into the future and forging an alternative/rock/EDM masterpiece with all-time legends and cutting-edge firebrands.
