Dave Grohl has let it be known that the Foo Fighters new long-player Concrete and Gold is going to hit this September 15.
It’s been produced by Greg Kurstin, who’s previously worked with the likes of Kylie, Britney, Adele, Kesha, Santigold, Sia and a bunch of others who actually use surnames. So, does this mean that we could we be hearing a softer side of the Foos?
According to Dave in a press statement, “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.”
In an interview with BBC Radio 1, Dave admitted to being insecure when previous albums have dropped, but he’s super-keen for this one to be heard – “I’m like, ‘Listen to this!’”
He also let loose a very big tease about the album featuring a bunch of guests, with some that will apparently really surprise. These include “Probably the biggest popstar in the world singing backup on one of the record’s heaviest songs.”
We can’t wait! Here’s the track listing…
