Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello has released a cover of AC/DC‘s “Highway to Hell” featuring Bruce Springsteen and Eddie Vedder.
The song will feature on Morello’s upcoming solo album, The Atlas Underground Fire, which is due for release on October 15. The album will also feature collaborations with Chris Stapleton, Mike Posner and Damian Marley.
“Our version of ‘Highway to Hell’ pays homage to AC/DC … bringing this legendary song into the future,” Morello said in a press release.
“We had played ‘Highway To Hell’ live a few times with Eddie Vedder on vocals when I was on tour with the E Street Band in Australia in 2014, so I began to wonder, what does the most ferocious version of this song sound like in 2021? I put together a pretty rocking demo and sent it over to Bruce and Eddie with my fingers crossed,” he added. “This is what we got back: 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 play a shredding guitar solo. Thank you and good night.”
The Atlas Underground Fire, follows Morello’s 2018 LP, The Atlas Underground, which also featured many guests.
