Måneskin have unveiled a brand new single featuring guitar contributions from none other than Rage Against The Machine legend, Tom Morello. The track, titled Gossip, is a bouncy, catchy indie-rock banger, with Morello's unmistakable tones heard peeling across the the top. 

The new single comes just a week ahead of the release of Måneskin's much anticipated new studio album, Rush!, which lands on January 20. As it happens, the Italian four-piece, who famously won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2021, are elated at the chance to work with a living guitar god.

“Tom Morello’s enormous experience allowed us to take cues on how to work on tracks without overthinking," says frontman Damiano David. "We can’t thank him enough for joining us on this track. It’s an honour for the whole band!” “Tom is one of the greatest musicians that I've always listened to and learned from," adds guitarist Thomas Raggi. "Playing with him is a dream come true. It’s an enormous gift and a personal highlight of this incredible year”

Bassist Victoria De Angelis expands on the song itself, explaining: "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.”
