Rage Against The Machine's Zach de la Rocha unveils first solo track

Digging for Windows is produced by Run The Jewels' El-P

Rage Against The Machine's Zach de la Rocha unveils first solo track
08 September 2016

Who? Zach de la Rocha

What’s the story? It must feel like Christmas for Rage Against The Machine fans right now. Hot on the heels of three-quarters of the band getting their groove on again with Prophets of Rage, now singer Zach de la Rocha has released his hugely long-awaited debut single proper in the form of Digging For Windows. A de la Rocha solo album has been in the works ever since Rage first split back in 2000 with only a few guest appearances and the One Day as a Lion EP in 2008 actually emerging. But finally, here we are, and the track sees him work with Run The Jewels' El-P once again, after featuring on their 2014 track Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck), Naturally, given that act's stellar output, the results are excellent, with a dark, dense beat - reminscent of a slightly tougher Massive Attack - providing the backdrop for de la Rocha's familiarly angry vocals. Please, can we finally have an album Zach? Cheers.

For fans of: Massive Attack

In three words: Long-awaited rap release
