Tom Morello Premieres New Song “Driving To Texas” Featuring Phantogram

Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine) has premiered a new song titled “Driving To Texas.” This track features Phantogram and it will appear on the guitarist’s new album, “The Atlas Underground Fire,“ which is set to be released on October 15. Morello commented:

“‘Driving To Texas‘ (feat. Phantogram) is a dark journey, a struggle for a tortured soul. The vocals, the sound textures, even the guitar solo evoke a terrifying counter reality where the road to the abyss beckons sweetly. I’d worked with Josh on the 2018 Atlas Underground album and was thrilled when Phantogram reached out to collaborate again. Sarah’s voice is haunting and beautiful and Josh’s production is so fresh and eerie.”

Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello Teams Up With Bruce Springsteen & Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder For Cover Of AC/DC’s “Highway To Hell”

Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello has released a new cover of AC/DC’s “Highway To Hell.” The track, which features Bruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, will appear on Morello’s new album, “The Atlas Underground Fire,” which is set to be released on October 15.

Morello said the following about the cover:

“Our version of ‘Highway To Hell’ pays homage to AC/DC but with Bruce Springsteen and Eddie Vedder, bringing this legendary song into the future. One of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll songs of all time sung by two of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll singers of all time. And then I drop a shredding guitar solo. Thank you and good night.”

He also added the following about the new album:

“During lockdown I had no access to an engineer so I had to record all of the guitar parts on the voice memo of my phone. This seemed like an outrageous idea but it lead to a freedom in creativity in that I could not overthink any of the guitar parts and just had to trust my instincts.

This record was a life raft in a difficult time that allowed me to find new ways of creating new global artistic connections that helped transform a time of fear and anxiety into one of musical expression and rocking jams.”

Three Days Grace Cover Phantogram’s “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore”

Three Days Grace have recorded a cover of Phantogram’s “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore.” Check it out below:

Neil Sanderson commented:

“In October, we were set up in a Toronto studio recording some live-off-the-floor music ideas, which we often like to do…just plug-in, hit the red button and see what happens. Brad started playing the bass line to this Phantogram song. We’d been talking the day before about how much we liked “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore”…really cool riff and lyrics. We started jamming it in a different key and tempo than the original, and it sounded really heavy and trashy in a good way. Pretty sure we kept the 2nd or 3rd take, once we learned the arrangement on the fly. We love recording spur of the moment things like this. We think it turned out pretty cool so we decided to share it.”
