The tune will be on his new solo album “The Atlas Underground Flood”, the second one released in last than a year, since Morello recently released “The Atlas Underground Fire”. In his Instagram, Morello talked about the new record, saying: “The Atlas Underground Flood finishes what The Atlas Underground Fire started.”

“With Fire & Flood I was inspired by The Clash’s “London Calling”. I sought to make a double album where artistic intent supersedes genre. I aimed to forge a central curated vision to tie together a sonically fearless, wild, and wide ranging musical ambition with a tremendous cast of collaborators. And of course, there are many guitar solos.”

The Clash is Morello’s favorite band

Tom Morello explained in an interview with Classic Rock in 2021 why The Clash is his favorite band of all time, saying: “The Clash are my favourite rock’n’roll band of all time. London Calling was the launching point for my love of the band. Until I discovered punk, I was a heavy metal fan. It was the cover of that album that first piqued my interest and made me think: ‘Who is this great new heavy metal band?’”

“I devoured that record. I could not believe how great it was; it made much of my heavy metal collection seem very silly. It was music I could relate to lyrically much more than the dungeons-and-dragons-type lyrics of my metal forbears. The conviction with which the band played and with which Joe Strummer sang were indescribable.”
