After dropping some cryptic teasers, the Foo Fighters have announced their new album, Medicine At Midnight, out February 5th, 2021.
The band confirmed the news before they did their Saturday Night Live set this past weekend. The album seems to be tight and concise with only nine songs spanning 37 minutes. Greg Kurstin and the Foo Fighters handled production, while Darrell Thorp and Mark “Spike” Stent handled engineering and mixing respectively.
The Foo Fighters also released the album’s lead single “Shame Shame.” Listen to it below.
Frontman Dave Grohl previously described the album as “unlike anything we’ve ever done.”
During an interview with ALT 98.7 FM, Grohl compared the record to David Bowie’s 1983 album, Let’s Dance.
“It’s filled with these anthemic, huge, sing-along rock songs. It’s almost like a dance record in a weird way. Not an EDM, disco, modern dance record – it’s got groove. To me, it’s like our David Bowie’s Let’s Dance record. That’s what we wanted to make, because we were, like, ‘Let’s make this really up, fun record. It’s got its dark corners, but we were so excited to go out an play and then we just hit pause on everything.”
