As revealed last month during a Sevendust livestream, the band's drummer Morgan Rose is preparing his first ever solo release. Controlled Chaos now has a Nov. 27 street date and today we're getting Rose's first solo single, "The Answer."

While Rose does make the drums felt within the chugging rocker, the song takes you on a journey through hypnotic verses and a soaring chorus. It's definitely a solid solo start for the musician. You can hear the song toward the bottom of the page and check out the lyrics right below.

Seething under my skin
Protecting all that I am
Anticipating for the last time
You can be broken
All that you want

Cause I won’t give anymore
Wish you feel alive inside
But nothing can change your mind
Erase the shadow left behind
Stop and realize
I’m not the answer

Waiting for the next face
Consider all you can take
Before you end up like the last one
Cut you right open

Just so feel what it’s like
Nothing left unknown

Wish you feel alive inside
But nothing can change your mind
Erase the shadow left behind
Stop and realize
Now you see
I’m not the answer

Tell me you want it to stop
Look me in the eyes and imagine
A world filled
With so much love and hope

Where you can feel alive inside
And nothing can change your mind
Erase the shadows left behind
Now you realize
I’m not answer
The shadow left your eyes
Finally realize
Then you’ll see
I’m not the answer

Rose co-wrote the Controlled Chaos EP with fellow Sevendust rocker Clint Lowery and welcomed Corey Taylor bassist Jason Christopher to round out his musical backing. The record will drop on Nov. 27 via Rise Records and you can pre-order the set right here.
