Tom Morello Debuts New Song “Every Step That I Take”, Portgual. The Man & Whethan Guest


An official lyric video for Tom Morello‘s new song “Every Step That I Take” has premiered on the net. Portugal. The Man and Whethan are the guests on this particular track, which Morello plans to help raise suicide prevention awareness with. He recently told the Chicago Tribune of his plans:

“For the song ‘Every Step That I Take‘ with Portugal.The Man and Whethan, a teenage EDM marvel, we’re partnering with an organization called SAVE [Suicide Awareness Voices of Education,] focusing on suicide prevention, information and depression awareness. With the passing of Chris [Cornell of Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog and Audioslave] over a year ago, and the momentum towards removing the stigma from mental health issues and suicidal thoughts, it was very important to have a song from that point of view.

I’ve had mental illness issues in my family and among my friends in the past, and there’s a current trend toward this demystification to encourage people, among your friends, loved ones and professionals, there is help and there are ways. You know, you break your arm — it’s not a stigma to go to the hospital to get it set.

Hopefully we’re able to start looking at suicidal thoughts and depression in the same way that can materially save lives. ‘Every Step That I Take‘ is about how the dreams, and depression, and love and the lack of it on the emotional steps of the gallows are processed. It was a song written by myself and Matt Shultz from Cage the Elephant and Johnny (Gourley) from Portugal.The Man sings it and it’s just a beautiful song. One of my favorites on the record.”

Morello‘s new album “The Atlas Underground” will hit stores next Friday, October 12th, and feature numerous guests.
