We’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of ‘Concrete & Gold’ from Foo Fighters for months now, but today it’s finally here. And all this weekend we’ve got copies of the brilliant new album to give away. Listen in to Radio Nova between the hours of 10-5pm this weekend to be in with a chance to win one of 16 copies!
The new record is the ninth studio album from the lads, produced by Greg Kurstin and mixed by Darrell Thorp. The eleven track album has already received rave reviews from music publications after they performed at Glastonbury this year.

“Arguably the biggest American rock band of the past 20 years”—ROLLING STONE
Dave Grohl wrote the following about the album: “I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever. To make a gigantic rock record but with Greg Kurstin’s sense of melody and arrangement.. Motorhead’s version of Sgt. Pepper… or something like that.”
Grohl previously spoke about the recording of the new album, saying “We’ve made the biggest sounding Foo Fighters song we’ve ever made. I think it’s going to take people by surprise.”
Musical contributors to the album include Justin Timberlake contributing backing vocals, Paul McCarthy playing drums and the Kills’ Alison Mosshart and Boyz II Mean singer Shawn Stockman contributing vocals.
