FOO FIGHTERS will launch their tenth album, “Medication At Midnight”, on February 5, 2021 through Roswell Information/RCA Information. Frontman Dave Grohl instructed New York’s Q104.3 radio station in regards to the band’s determination to place out new music through the coronavirus pandemic (hear audio under): “We began penning this report nearly two years in the past — a 12 months and a half in the past. We have been writing it whereas we have been nonetheless on tour. We moved into this funky outdated home in my neighborhood; constructed a studio within the upstairs bed room; recorded the drums in the lounge; the guitars have been within the bed room. I did the vocals within the toilet subsequent to the bathroom. We began [recording] this, I believe, in perhaps September final 12 months, and we have been completed by January, February. We have been completely finished — blended, mastered, able to go. Paintings was finished; t-shirts have been being made; tools was on the vans — we have been good to go. After which every little thing simply sort of shut down. Then it was months and months of attempting to determine after we would launch it. ‘Okay, can we simply put it out now?’ ‘No, let’s wait. Possibly we’ll see what occurs.’ A month later, ‘Will we put it out now?’ ‘No, let’s wait.'”
He continued: “So, six or seven months glided by, and I am, like, we make this music for folks to listen to. We do not simply make it in order that we will go hit the highway. We write these songs so folks can take pleasure in them and sing alongside, whether or not it is of their kitchen by themselves with a bottle of Crown Royal or in a stadium bouncing round, singing the choruses. So, I used to be, like, proper now, greater than ever, folks want one thing to elevate their spirits, one thing to provide them some feeling of reduction or escape. I used to be, like, ‘We have gotta put it out. Let’s put it out proper now.’ I do not know after we’re gonna hit the highway, however we have to give the music to the folks, ‘trigger that is why we make it.”
The primary single from “Medication At Midnight”, a track known as “Disgrace Disgrace”, was launched final month. FOO FIGHTERS carried out the monitor reside for the primary time throughout their November 7 look on “Saturday Evening Stay”.
Grohl instructed Planet Rock about FOO FIGHTERS‘ musical method on “Medication At Midnight”: “I began eager about the path that we must always take for the following report. And I checked out our again catalog, and I assumed, okay, we have coated a number of territory in 25 years. We have made acoustic albums; we have made noisy rock data; we have made type of midtempo singalongs. And also you look again, and you need to use it as reference, however you do not essentially wanna revisit these locations that you have already been. And so of all of the issues that we have finished, I assumed the one album we have not made but is type of a groove-oriented celebration album. I imply, if you happen to have been to listen to the remainder of the report, a number of it’s rooted in these grooves that come from SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE and disco and two-step shuffle type of factor. As a drummer, I all the time take into consideration that as a basis, as a result of that may actually create the aesthetic or the vibe of an album. So I assumed, okay, a number of our favourite rock and roll bands through the years have that one report that is a rock and roll report you can actually dance to — whether or not it is THE ROLLING STONES‘ ‘Tattoo You’ or David Bowie‘s ‘Let’s Dance’ or a POWER STATION report; issues like that. I assumed, ‘We’ve not actually finished that but.’ Plenty of our albums are actually driving and typically sort of morose and melancholy, introspective. I used to be, like, ‘Fuck that! Let’s have a celebration. Let’s make that report the place you possibly can bounce round.'”
Relating to why FOO FIGHTERS selected “Disgrace Disgrace” as the primary single from “Medication At Midnight”, Grohl stated: “It is exhausting to determine which track you current to the folks first. You often need one thing that can symbolize the path or the tone of the album, however you do not essentially wanna do one thing that is instantly recognizable as your band; you need one thing that type of exhibits some sort of motion or progress or no matter it’s. And after we recorded this track — it was perhaps in the course of the session — it was clear that we hadn’t finished one thing like this earlier than, and it impressed us to maintain shifting in that path for the remainder of the report. I assumed if it have been as much as me, this is able to be the very first thing that the viewers would hear. ‘Trigger this album is not like something we have finished earlier than. Although it is nonetheless the band, and it is nonetheless recognizable because the FOO FIGHTERS in some elements, it is positively sonically and tonally completely different than one thing we have finished earlier than.”
