AUDIOSLAVE, the new group featuring ex-SOUNDGARDEN frontman Chris Cornell and former RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE members Tim Commerford (bass),Brad Wilk (drums),and Tom Morello (guitar),have written and recorded a pair of songs with rapper DMX, according to Billboard.com.
One of the two collaborations with DMX is a pairing of the rapper and all four band members, while the other is a leftover track for which Cornell has not yet written lyrics. A DMX spokesperson told Billboard that "Here I Come" is slated to show up in the forthcoming DMX/Jet Li film "Cradle to the Grave", the soundtrack for which should arrive in January or February on DMX's Bloodline label.
According to Commerford, "We Gonna Get It Right" was slated to appear on the Island soundtrack for the upcoming "Jackass" movie but was pulled from the project. "It's so good," the bassist said. "It's such a great song that we can't put it out now because it'll get too much attention."
AUDIOSLAVE's self-titled debut is due on November 19 through Epic Records.
