TOM MORELLO: 'We Don't Need You' Music Video Feat. VIC MENSA

Tom Morello has released the official music video for his solo song "We Don't Need You". The track, which features a guest appearance by Vic Mensa, is taken from the RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, AUDIOSLAVE and PROPHETS OF RAGE guitarist's upcoming solo album, "The Atlas Underground", which will be released on October 12 through Mom + Pop Music.

Morello recruited a number of other guest artists to appear on the 12-track LP, including GZA, Gary Clark Jr., K. Flay, Pretty Lights, Portugal. The Man, Whethan, Marcus Mumford, RISE AGAINST's Tim McIlrath, Carl Restivo, Nico Stadi, Leikeli47 and Herobust.

During an appearance on METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich's Beats 1 radio show "It's Electric!", Morello said about "The Atlas Underground": "I wanted to make a record that was the [Jimi] Hendrix of now, guitar playing that is outside of the norm and is extraordinary," creating "radio songs" that "connected with a mass audience" and fashioning a "new genre of music."

In a statement announcing the album, Morello said: "The riffs and the beats led the way, but the extraordinary talents of the collaborators set my creativity into uncharted territory.

"I've been devoted both musically and as an activist to fighting injustice at every turn," he added. "Amid this heightened sense of impending doom, it's now time to rally the troops in a last-ditch effort to save the planet, and our artistic souls. By challenging the boundaries of what music is and has sounded like before, you can open people's eyes to changing the status quo in society."
