Tom Morello as the Nightwatchman to Release 'Union Town' to Benefit . . . Unions

Categories: For a cause

Remember when Tom Morello declared he was a union man to protest Governor Scott Walker's anti-union bill in Wisconsin?

Well, he's putting his money where his mouth is and releasing the album Union Town via New West Records digitally on May 17, with a physical CD and vinyl release to follow on July 19.

All profits from Union Town will benefit The America Votes Labor Unity Fund via SaveWorkers.org.

The set will contain eight pro-union songs:  three Morello originals, as well as Woody Guthrie's classic "This Land Is Your Land" (including the more radical, often censored verses).

The song "Union Town" is available now at SaveWorkers.org. And if you're itching for more Morello music, you should know that this proletariat set is just a teaser for the Nightwatchman's third full-length, World Wide Rebel Songs.
Why is Morello doing this? According to his statement: "Performing in Madison, Wisconsin, and seeing 100,000 people in the streets demanding justice inspired me to record an album of union fighting songs. I've been a proud union man for 22 years, and my mom was a union public-high-school teacher, so for me, this fight is very personal. Unions are a crucial counterweight to the raw corporate greed that torpedoed our economy, threatens our environment and wants to strip away decades of social progress. From Cairo to Madison, workers are pushing back and tyrants are falling. Here's a soundtrack for our fight."

Union Town Track Listing:
1. Union Town
2. Solidarity Forever
3. Which Side Are You On?
4. A Wall Against the Wind
5. 16 Tons
6. This Land Is Your Land
7. I Dreamed I Saw Joe Hill Last Night
8. Union Song (Live,Capitol Square, Madison, Wisconsin, Feb. 21, 2011)
