New AUDIOSLAVE Video Inspired By BEATLES' 'Let It Be'

Launch Radio Networks is reporting that AUDIOSLAVE have filmed the video for "Be Yourself", the first single from their new album, "Out of Exile". The clip was filmed in an old hotel in downtown Los Angeles, and frontman Chris Cornell told Launch the group modeled the concept after THE BEATLES' film "Let It Be". "The idea really was coming from 'Let It Be', just the way the footage looked to me," he said. "If you watch 'Let It Be', the look of the film makes the band look like it's an important happening. I just wanted to look important, like things looked when I was a child."

The "Be Yourself" video will arrive later this month.

AUDIOSLAVE's second album, "Out of Exile", is due out on May 24. It's the follow-up to the group's self-titled, double-platinum 2002 debut.

AUDIOSLAVE — who feature in their ranks former SOUNDGARDEN singer Cornell and three members from RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE — begin touring on April 14 in Las Vegas.
