Featuring collaborators including Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, Chris Stapleton, Mike Posner, Damian Marley and more, The Atlas Undergound Fire puts Mr. Morello’s guitar playing on full display, taking the instrument into the future and forging an alternative/rock/EDM masterpiece with all-time legends and cutting-edge firebrands. The genre-spanning tracklist includes Mr. Morello’s latest single, “The War Inside” featuring Chris Stapleton, which was released alongside a music video animated by Tom Crew. Mr. Morello premiered the track in an exclusive interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1’s The Zane Lowe Show. Mr. Morello — co-founder of Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave and Prophets of Rage — is widely known as a barrier breaking guitarist who continues to push the limits and prove the transformative power of music. Of the album, Mr. Morello said: “Making this album was a life raft during a troubled time. Creating a global conspiracy of rock‘n’roll pen pals of incredible and diverse talents really kept me going and helped me push myself as an artist and guitarist. I recorded all my guitar parts in a cloistered isolation and it feels great now to unleash these tunes on the world and inflict the latest chapter of my bizarro guitar playing on an unsuspecting public.”
