Tom Morello releases new single “Driving to Texas” with Phantogram – Manila Bulletin
Rock & roll icon and two-time Grammy winner Tom Morello has released a new single from his recently announced album project The Atlas underground fire. The original song “Driving To Texas” with Phantogram is available HERE.
“I had worked with Josh from Phantogram on my first Atlas Underground album and was thrilled when he and Sarah offered to collaborate on this album. This song is scary as hell – a dark journey, a struggle for a tortured soul. The guitar solo must have felt like an avenging angel who came 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 extent 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 this next album The Atlas underground fire on October 15th by Mom + Pop Music. The disc is available for pre-order now HERE.

With a breathtaking cast of collaborators including Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, Chris Stapleton, Mike Posner, Damian Marley and many more, Morello’s insane 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 state-of-the-art embers.
