Tom Morello says Audioslave has some previously unreleased material that will eventually be released

Ever since the passing of Chris Cornell, Audioslave fans have wondered if the band would ever do a reunion show or release music without their longtime frontman. Now, Tom Morello is discussing the possibility of some previously unreleased Audioslave tracks finding their way to the public’s ears.

“There’s not a lot, but it’s pretty great, and it will come out at some point,” Morello said in a new interview with Kerrang!. “I don’t know when.”

One of the songs Morello says should eventually be released is “Sleight of Hand,” which Audioslave performed live but never actually released.

“It was going to be the first single for (Audioslave’s 2006 album “Revelations”),” Morello said of “Sleight of Hand,” adding, “but (bass player) Timmy (Commerford) really hated it because he thought it sounded like a Danzig song, which is weird.”

That said, Morello insists that “Sleight of Hand” and other previously unreleased Audioslave songs “will see the light of day.”

Audioslave famously brought together Cornell, who is also the frontman of Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog, with the instrumentalists of Rage Against the Machine, including Morello, Commerford and Brad Wilk. The band released three albums together and parted ways in 2007. Audioslave reunited a decade later for a single show in 2017, which had fans speculating if new music was on the way. Cornell passed away in May of 2017 after performing a show with Soundgarden at The Fox Theatre in Detroit.

In other news, Morello recently released a new album called “The Atlas Underground.” The album features guest appearances from Rise Against’s Tim McIlrath, Mumford & Sons’ Marcus Mumford, Portugal. the Man, K. Flay and more.
