Watch: TOM MORELLO Joins MÅNESKIN For 'Gossip' Performance On 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'
January 27, 2023
Italian rockers MÅNESKIN performed their new single, "Gossip", on Thursday's (January 26) episode of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon". They were joined by RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello, who also appears on the studio version of the track.
Fierce with a rapid, infectious and hammering guitar hook, MÅNESKIN's latest offering continues to reaffirm the group's status as a genuine force in rock and roll. The single is taken from MÅNESKIN's latest album "Rush!", which arrived on January 20.
Regarding their collaboration with Morello, MÅNESKIN's Damiano David said: "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 honor for the whole band!" Ethan Torchio added: "Tom Morello brought some RAGE to MÅNESKIN!" Thomas Raggi said: "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." Victoria De Angelis commented: "The song originated from a riff which Thomas had written some time ago and which we had been holding onto for a long time which we kept developing. Then the icon Tom Morello joined and brought something extra to the classic uptempo MÅNESKIN cheerfulness."
