You can download singer, songwriter, guitarist Tom Morello’s “Union Town” for free Thursday, April 28 at SaveWorkers.org. Morello’s album by the same name will be available in digital form on May 17 and on CD and vinyl on July 19. Proceeds from the sale go America Votes Labor Unity Fund.
Morello is/was the lead guitar for Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, and Nightwatchman. His eight-song EP is inspired by the events in Wisconsin. Morello told the Los Angeles Times that we have the chance now to “harness the energy of 100,000 to 150,000 people who were in the streets and want to put some teeth back into the labor movement in the US.”
