Nandi Bushell announces new song with Tom Morello to follow US visit
The 11-year-old musical prodigy excitedly recalled her trip on social media.September 2, 2021
The viral drummer revealed the news Wednesday on Instagram while recalling her recent vacation in the United States.
One of the highlights of the trip included reuniting with Dave Grohl—who previously lost to Bushell in a drumming battle—during Foo Fighters’ concert at The Forum.
“Jamming with legendary #guitarist @tommorello (@rageagainstthemachine / #audioslave) and is #incredible son, Roman! We have written an #Epic song together (not the one you hear in our sweet improvisational jam). Our new song is going released soon!!! I can’t wait for you all to hear it! Thank you for welcoming us into your beautiful family!” Bushell wrote.
Morello came across Bushell after she uploaded a multi-instrumental cover of Rage Against The Machine’s “Guerrilla Radio” on her YouTube channel in June 2020 and, as a gift, gave Bushell his signature Fender Stratocaster guitar.
“I just asked him to write a song about climate change. [C]limate change is probably going to wipe out the world if we don’t do something about it,” Bushell says. “So if we raise awareness, people can do the right thing to stop climate change.”
While an exact release date for the single has yet to be announced, the track is expected to drop soon, accompanied by a music video starring Bushell, the Morellos and Jack Black.
