“Are you thinking what I’m thinking?”
Previewing this album, the Dave Grohl led band have shared the band’s first single ‘Rescued’.
A press release has said that the track explores “rage and sorrow to serenity and acceptance, and myriad points in between”.
Check that out below.
Foo Fighters had been sharing several teaser videos, appearing to insinuate that new music was on the horizon.
Yesterday, the band shared a 25 second video, showing new music, along with displaying their logo.
It also featured the following caption, “Are you thinking what I’m thinking? / Are you feeling what I’m Feeling? / This is happening now”.
Previously, Foo Fighters had shared a 13 second video of new music, with thumping drums and an atmospheric guitar melody.
Again, the video was posted with a caption, “Are you thinking what I’m thinking?”. Check these posts out and Nova’s report here.
While it was also confirmed that ‘But Here We Are’ would be produced by long time collaborator Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, no new information has been released regarding who played the drums on the tracks.
Pearl Jam’s Matt Cameron had previously quashed rumours that he was to become the band’s next sticksman.
