The new track appears on the Pretty Reckless’ upcoming album Death By Rock And Roll.
We are just over a month away from the highly-anticipated release of the Pretty Reckless’ new album Death By Rock And Roll. Over the past few months, the band have offered fans a few tastes of what they can expect from the forthcoming LP.
Back in May, they released the album’s powerful title track “Death By Rock And Roll.” As well, just in time for Halloween, the band unleashed “Broomsticks.” More recently, to celebrate the official release date for the album, the Pretty Reckless treated fans to the emotional song “25.”
Now, the Pretty Reckless are back with another preview of Death By Rock And Roll. On Friday, they debuted the powerful rock track “And So It Went.” For the song, the Pretty Reckless called upon Rage Against The Machine‘s Tom Morello.
“And So It Went” brings out the best in both the Pretty Reckless and Morello. Along with Taylor Momsen‘s powerful vocals and the band’s distinct sound, Morello incorporates his own guitar flair fans are so familiar with. During the song’s bridge especially, Morello’s signature guitar riffs bleed into “And So It Went,” making for a refreshing rock collab fans have been waiting for.
“The world has been in such a state of civil unrest,” Momsen says. “‘And So It Went’ basically comes from that vision. As a songwriter, I feel like I’m not here to preach. I use music to observe and communicate what I see around me. This song felt like the perfect storm for Tom Morello to join in and rip the sound waves apart with his guitar. It was more than a pleasure having him add his unique and defining sound to the song.”
Earlier this week, Momsen was added to the all-star lineup for an upcoming David Bowie tribute show. A Bowie Celebration kicks off on Saturday, Jan. 9 to help celebrate what would’ve been Bowie’s 74th birthday. YUNGBLUD, Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor, Foo Fighters‘ Taylor Hawkins and Trent Reznor are among the other artists participating in the livestream event.
As well, Morello just debuted another collaboration this week. He recently teamed up with System Of A Down‘s Serj Tankian for a cover of Gang Of Four‘s “Natural’s Not In It.” The cover is featured in an upcoming tribute album to guitarist Andy Gill who passed away in February 2020.
