Tom Morello recently released a video as THE NIGHTWATCHMAN for a song called "Alone Without You", according to a press release. Morello composed the tune after seeing an early cut of filmmaker Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Sicko", and let Moore use the song over the film's closing credits. The video debuted at MichaelMoore.com and the tune itself was added as a bonus track to Morello's debut album as THE NIGHTWATCHMAN, "One Man Revolution".
Morello said about the song, "'Alone Without You' is a testament to the struggle and loss faced by millions of Americans who are cast aside by a healthcare system that puts profit before people and families."
Morello and Moore recently interviewed each other as part of MySpace's "Artist On Artist" series.
Moore directed the videos for RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE's "Sleep Now In The Fire" and "Testify", while THE NIGHTWATCHMAN opened for Moore on a 2004 speaking tour.

Due April 24 via Epic, the 13-track set was produced by Brendan O'Brien and sports acoustic-based compositions that are a far cry from the heavy guitar rock Morello has purveyed in Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave.
The artist has been utilizing the Nightwatchman moniker for the past three years for performances, and has of late been hosting a Tuesday night residency at Los Angeles' Hotel Cafe. Among the guests that have dropped by recently are System Of A Down's Serj Tankian, Cypress Hill's Sen Dog and Perry Farrell.
Morello will tour this spring, including an appearance at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, in mid-March. But perhaps of most interest to hardcore fans are rumors that Rage Against The Machine may be reuniting for the first time in six-plus years to play the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival this spring.
