After a massive year, the latest single "GOSSIP" from 2023 GRAMMY nominee Måneskin's highly-anticipated third studio album, RUSH, set for release on January 20, arrives today with a music video and new haircuts for some of the members.
Upon sharing the single featuring Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello, drummer Ethan Torchio said in a statement that Tom, "brought some Rage to Måneskin!" Singer Damiano David adds, "Tom Morello’s enormous experience allowed us to take cues on how to work on tracks without overthinking. We can’t thank him enough for joining us on this track. It’s an honour for the whole band!" Bassist Victoria De Angelis explained how the track came about over time, saying they had been holding onto a riff that guitarist Thomas Raggi had written, "some time ago... Then the icon Tom Morello joined and brought something extra to the classic uptempo Måneskin cheerfulness."
For his part, Morello says, "When I heard that there was a rock and 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 and roll for a younger generation."
Maneskin's Raggi continued heaping on praise for Morello, saying 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 of this incredible year."
