Tom Morello has shared a new unreleased song, “You Belong To Me”, you can listen to it below.

Originally recorded as part of his solo project, The Nightwatchman, the folk-inspired song shows Morello reflecting on Nat Turner, who led an 1831 slave rebellion in Virginia. Morello has previously spoken about the rebellion’s influence on his work in an interview with Rolling Stone.

Writing about the unreleased song on Twitter on August 7, Morello said: “Our present is tethered to our past. The overseer’s whip & noose of history are today echoed in the policeman’s baton & pistol. I had a very clear idea I wanted to express with the song & the video and that is: Sometimes, enough is enough. #YouBelongToMe.”

Like this month, last month Morello debuted “Stand Up,” a powerful new protest song inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement.
