Tom Morello, guitarist for Rage Against the Machine, says he's currently working on a new solo album. Speaking with Billboard, he adds that the record won't be anything like his acoustic solo work done under the guise of the Nightwatchmen.
In fact, he told the mag, he's "in the midst of making [his] first solo big rock record.”
"The first time I ever sang with an electric guitar in my hands was 'The Ghost of Tom Joad' [with Springsteen] at the Anaheim Pond in 2008. Until then I'd kept my folk singing career and my electric guitar shredding career completely separate. It was on that [Anaheim] stage that I realized there might be a way to combine all the things I do as a songwriter and a guitar player, and this record is going to be that.”
Morello adds that he's still in the writing process for the new LP.
