Hear MÅNESKIN team with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE's TOM MORELLO on new song "Gossip"

Guitar hero and "Beggin'" hit-makers unite

Måneskin had been beggin', and now they've finally got it: a guest appearance from Tom Morello. The innovative guitar hero is featured on the chart-topping Italian band's new single "Gossip," off their upcoming third album, RUSH! The song is a jangly, upbeat garage-rock number far flung from Rage Against the Machine's rap-metal outrage or Audioslave's soulful angst, but it's cool to hear Morello's high-voltage playing in such a different context. Stream "Gossip" above via YouTube.

"The song originated from a riff which Thomas [Raggi, guitar] had written some time ago and which we had been holding onto for a long time which we kept developing," bassist Victoria De Angelis commented. "Then the icon Tom Morello joined and brought something extra to the classic uptempo Måneskin cheerfulness."

Raggi added: "Tom is one of the greatest musicians that I've always listened to and learned from. Playing with him is a dream come true. It's an enormous gift and a personal highlight..."

For his part, Morello said, "When I heard that there was a rock'n'roll band from Italy that was blowing up around the world I was like, 'Really? Come on.' Then when I saw them play live I was blown away. They are unapologetically loud, unapologetically sexy, and unapologetically rocking and deserve to be one of the standard bearers for rock'n'roll for a younger generation. I got to jam with them at their studio in Hollywood, it's a great band, they all play great, they write great songs, they connect with their audience in a deep and meaningful way, and if you've seen them play live the crowd goes off! It looks a lot like some of the big bands of the '90s."

RUSH! is due out January 30th and available for pre-order now.
