Foo Fighters will release their 8th studio album Sonic Highways on 10th November it has been confirmed.
The album has been produced by Butch Vig and the Foo Fighters. Sonic Highways shares its title with the Dave Grohl-directed eight-episode HBO series described by Grohl as a love letter to the history of American music and premiering Friday, October 17 at 11 p.m.
Talking about the album frontman Dave Grohl says, “This album is instantly recognizable as a Foo Fighters record, but there’s something deeper and more musical to it. I think that these cities and these people influenced us to stretch out and explore new territory, without losing our ‘sound’.”
The tracklisting for the album is:
1. Something From Nothing
2. The Feast and The Famine
4. What Did I Do?/God As My Witness
6. In The Clear
8. I Am A River
