RAT Rock News

Alex Lifeson recently revealed he worked on a new track with Kirk Hammett and Tom Morello.

The guitarist told Ultimate Classic Rock that the song in question is for a project that Morello is working on and said, “…He’s working with a bunch of different musicians. I don’t really know what the future holds for it, but I really loved doing it.” Lifeson had such a blast that he said, “I’m hoping that [Morello] might have something else to send along.”

As for what this collaboration of guitar icons will sound like, it’s unclear at the moment, but Lifeson noted when Morello reached out, he just sent him some riffs and was told to “Put whatever you want on it.”

Lifeson added, “Being the contrarian, I did all of [these other styles], not just heavy rock stuff. We were all talking to each other while we were doing it, and we just had such a riot. I sent my stuff in and it went to Kirk then, and he sent his stuff in…It’s really some fun music…I thought it was really, really cool the way it turned out.”
