Published Sep 08, 2016Former members of Rage Against the Machine are currently operating as part of the Prophets of Rage supergroup alongside Chuck D and B-Real, but frontman Zack de la Rocha abstained from any involvement in the project. He has, however, just unveiled his debut solo single.
He got some high-profile help of his own on the new cut, which was produced by Run the Jewels' El-P and is going by the name "Digging for Windows." It opens with a sparse, hammering beat below de la Rocha's aggressive raps, though things do pick up with explosions of ominous electro blasts taking things in a more dramatic direction as the song progresses.
De la Rocha has apparently been working on a solo album since leaving Rage Against the Machine back in 2000, though series of songs have been scrapped since. The arrival of "Digging for Windows" is probably a promising sign of things to come, but while we await any further details on upcoming projects, listen to the new track below.
