Legendary musician Tom Morello teams up with K.Flay for his latest track Lucky One, off his highly anticipated forthcoming album, The Atlas Underground. Lucky One, featuring K.Flay is available everywhere now.
To accompany the song, Morello and K.Flay sat down to discuss how the track came together, watch here:
The song and interview premiered with The FADER, praised the track saying, “Lucky One is a reckoning… harkening back to the days of Rage, with the exception of the celestial vocals from K. Flay, a likeminded rapper and rock musician.”
Of the track Tom states, “Are you the person you were meant to be? The next Mozart might be slaving away somewhere in a sweatshop. The doctor who could cure cancer might instead be behind bars for petty theft. LUCKY ONE asks, Who’s dreams turn to dust? Whose are allowed to flower? Who dies first? Who laughs last? Who’s the lucky one?”
