Tom Morello is set to release his new solo single, “Soldier In The Army Of Love” on June 28. Ahead of its release, he explained that he wrote it with his 13-year old son, Roman.

“Well, one of the things that was very inspiring was I have a 13-year-old guitar prodigy son, Roman, who we wrote this song together.” Morello told TotalRock. “And his riffs are heavier than mine, and I’ve been relegated to the rhythm guitar player status in the family. So we did this song, ‘Soldier In The Army Of Love’, together, and it was just so rocking. It was sort of the genesis of this whole idea.”

He continued, “I’ve done a lot of records – collaborative records, records laced with hip-hop, electronica, acoustic records, and this is really the first Tom Morello solo rock album, and this song, ‘Soldier In The Army Of Love’, really sort of encapsulates what it’s about.”

Morello praised his son’s talents, “It’s nice to see the DNA has flowed in the right direction, and I think that rock’s in a pretty good place, ’cause there’s another Morello coming.”

“Soldier In The Army Of Love” is the first single from Morello’s debut full-length album, due out later this year.
