“The Maze” is Morello’s fourth single to be released from his new album. Lyrically, it reflects a feeling of nostalgia for a lost time. The artist makes promises to a love who’s no longer in his life. In true Morello style, a guitar solo emerges to highlight the emotion-driven chorus.

Morello’s previous solo album, The Atlas Underground Fire, featured an array of different artists as well as a variety of musical genres. Continuing this trend, the musician’s second album release of the year will follow a similar path. The album will feature Kirk Hammet, Alex Lifeson and X Ambassadors, among many others. In a press release, Morello explains his the link between the two albums albums.

The Atlas Underground Flood finishes what The Atlas Underground Fire started,” Morello says. “I sought to make a double album where artistic intent supersedes genre. I aimed to forge a central curated vision to tie together a sonically fearless, wild and wide-ranging musical ambition with a tremendous cast of collaborators. And of course, there are many guitar solos.”
