Another taste of their upcoming album 'Medicine At Midnight'.
On the day that Dave Grohl celebrates another lap around the sun, Foo Fighters have released another taste of their upcoming 10th album 'Medicine At Midnight'.
'Waiting On A War' is an acoustic-led ballad of sorts that stems from a very emotional and personal event for Dave.
Let him explain:
"Last fall, as I was driving my daughter to school, she turned to me and asked, “Daddy, is there going to be a war?” My heart sank as I realized that she was now living under the same dark cloud that I had felt 40 years ago. "
I wrote “Waiting on a War” that day.
Everyday waiting for the sky to fall. Is there more to this than that? Is there more to this than just waiting on a war? Because I need more. We all do.
This song was written for my daughter, Harper, who deserves a future, just as every child does."
Have a listen below:
'Medicine At Midnight' is set for release on February 05.
It will also feature 'No Son Of Mine':
And 'Shame Shame':
The band also recently released a sentimental documentary focusing on their 25 years as a band. Catch up with that here:
