SYSTEM OF A DOWN's TANKIAN, Ex-RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE Singer Guest On SAUL WILLIAMS CD

SYSTEM OF A DOWN's Serj Tankian and ex-RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE frontman Zack de la Rocha are among the guest musicians contributing to Saul Williams' self-titled, sophomore album due September 21.

"He gave it to me on CD right when I was recording the album and I was like 'Oh my god, this would be a perfect introduction.'" The collaboration resulted in the album's opening track, "Talk to Strangers", where Williams recites his verse over a nervy piano refrain flecked with samples of female opera singers. Read more.
