Tom Morello To Honor Chris Cornell With New Song “Every Step That I Take”

During an an interview with the Chicago Tribune, Tom Morello (Prophets Of Rage/Rage Against The Machine) revealed that he will be partnering with SAVE (Suicide Awareness Voices of Education) for his new song “Every Step That I Take” as way to honor his late Audioslave bandmate Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, etc.). That track features Portugal.The Man and Whethan, and it will appear on Morello’s new album “The Atlas Underground” (out October 12).

Morello said the following:

“For the song “Every Step That I Take” with Portugal.The Man and Whethan, a teenage EDM marvel, we’re partnering with an organization called SAVE (Suicide Awareness Voices of Education), focusing on suicide prevention, information and depression awareness. With the passing of Chris (Cornell of Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog and Audioslave) over a year ago, and the momentum towards removing the stigma from mental health issues and suicidal thoughts, it was very important to have a song from that point of view.

I’ve had mental illness issues in my family and among my friends in the past, and there’s a current trend toward this demystification to encourage people, among your friends, loved ones and professionals, there is help and there are ways. You know, you break your arm — it’s not a stigma to go to the hospital to get it set. Hopefully we’re able to start looking at suicidal thoughts and depression in the same way that can materially save lives. “Every Step That I Take” is about how the dreams, and depression, and love and the lack of it on the emotional steps of the gallows are processed. It was a song written by myself and Matt Shultz from Cage the Elephant and Johnny (Gourley) from Portugal.The Man sings it and it’s just a beautiful song. One of my favorites on the record.”

Tom Morello Streams Cover Of AC/DC’s “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap”

Tom Morello (Prophets Of Rage, Rage Against The Machine) is streaming his reworked cover of AC/DC‘s “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap” via Rolling Stone. You can check that out HERE. The track will appear Appleseed Recordings’ 21st anniversary compilation, “Appleseed 21st Anniversary: Roots And Branches,” which is set to be released on October 19. Jim Musselman, founder and president of Appleseed, commented:

“Tom is someone I deeply admire for his music and commitment to social justice. ‘Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap’ is a parody of the original song; Tom wrote it to reflect US foreign policy. It hits at the core of so many things our country is dealing with. With the new songs on the first CD of Roots and Branches, I wanted to cover many major issues facing this country: gun control, heroin deaths, the US border, anti-war and violence, the environment, racism and so much more. We as a label have taken stances on so many issues over the 21 years we have been around. We are proud of being on the right side of so many of those issues with our music and our artists.”
