Tom Morello Readies Second Album of 2021 'The Atlas Underground Flood'
Hear three new singles from the effort
Published Nov 17, 2021Tom Morello has announced plans for his second album of 2021, The Atlas Underground Flood, which is due to arrive on December 3 via Mom + Pop Music.
Today, the musician is previewing the material with the release of three new singles: "Human" featuring Barns Courtney and "Raising Hell" featuring Ben Harper, which arrive accompanied by their own music videos, and "Hard Times" featuring Jim Jones, Nathaniel Rateliff and Chipotle Joe.
The record will likewise find contributions from an all-star cast of collaborators, including Jim James, Rush's Alex Lifeson, Metallica's Kirk Hammett, Manchester Orchestra, IDLES, X Ambassadors and more.
The release will serve as a "sister album" to Morello's The Atlas Underground Fire, which arrived in October.
"The Atlas Underground Flood finishes what The Atlas Underground Fire started," Morello said in a statement. "Fire and Flood are my London Calling. Admiring the Clash at their apex moment, I sought to make a double album where artistic intent supersedes genre."
He continued: "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."
