AUDIOSLAVE's TOM MORELLO Sets Record Straight On DMX Collaboration

AUDIOSLAVE guitarist Tom Morello recently set the record straight on his band's collaboration with rapper DMX, which, according to Morello, took place "a couple of months ago."

"We sent him a track that he just loved and we were originally going to do it for a soundtrack, but he loved it so much he wanted to put it on his next record," Morello explained. So we said, 'All right, fine,' and we came up with a new track which is really one of the most slamming...It's probably the definitive...Rock-rap has had a nice long life, and I'd have to say that it's gonna be tough to cap this one."

Morello added: "It's a song called 'Wrecking Ball'. It's not on our record. We're trying to find the right place for it to come out. It's really a phenomenally roaring track with DMX and [AUDIOSLAVE vocalist] Chris [Cornell], or DMX and AUDIOSLAVE. We're not sure where those songs...The one song will come out on DMX's record. I'm not sure where the other song will come out."

On reports that a song called "Here I Come" is on the "Cradle 2 The Grave" soundtrack, Morello responded, "I don't know anything about that. I read something about that in Rolling Stone. I don't have any idea what that movie is and I certainly know that's nothing we've talked about."

AUDIOSLAVE's self-titled debut is due to be released on Nov. 19 through Epic Records.
