New Chuck Berry! This Single Features Nathaniel Rateliff and Tom Morello

We’ve all heard by now that Chuck Berry, the great rock’n’roll pioneer, died on Saturday at the age of 90. But before he passed, he recorded his first album of new material in 38 years.

Called Chuck, the album is scheduled for release on June 16–and it features some very interesting guest musicians. And because there has been so much renewed interest in Chuck since his death, his family has elected to release one song from the album this week. “Big Boys” includes contributions from Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, Prophets of Rage) and Nathaniel Rateliff (he of The Night Sweats). As you listen to this, remember that Chuck was 90 years old when he recorded the song.

The full track listing is:

Wonderful Woman

Big Boys

You Go To My Head

3/4 Time (Enchiladas)
