We recently told you about Tom Morello’s new solo project, Atlas Underground, which he has been teasing on Twitter. Well, now the Prophets of Rage guitarist has finally coughed up a new single from the upcoming self-titled solo album.
The single, “We Don’t Need You” features rapper Vic Mensa and some of Morello’s signature riffs over heavy rap beats. Morello says that the album’s lyrics come from “social justice ghost stories,” which fits with the verses on this single. Mensa raps, “Don’t lie to me, the poor go to war, there’s no war on poverty.”
Morello is planning to play the album in its entirety for fans on October 11th at the Lodge Room in Los Angeles, tickets are available here. “The Atlas Underground” is due for release on October 12th.
