Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters announced their new album today, entitled Concrete and Gold, it comes out September 15th from Roswell/RCA. The album was produced by Greg Kurstin and features the previously released single “Run.” This is their first full-length since 2014’s Sonic Highway which accompanied the HBO miniseries about musical roots in cities across America.

Featuring 11 tracks, the album is purported to feature several special guests. Dave Grohl had this to say about the albums sound, “I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters album ever. To make a gigantic rock record, but with Greg Kurstin’s sense of melody and arrangement … Motorhead’s version of Sgt. Pepper.” Grohl is being mysterious about the guest contributors, “There’s one who is probably the biggest pop star in the world and… I’m not kidding… sings backup on one of the heaviest songs on the record and we’re not telling anybody who it is.”
