Co-produced by the band and Butch Vig, the eight-song album was recorded at eight iconic studios in eight U.S. cities including Los Angeles, Nashville and New York.
Foo Fighters has just shared more details about their new album. On Monday, August 11, the band announced their eighth studio effort would be called "Sonic Highways" and it would hit the stores on November 10.
The album is named after an upcoming HBO documentary directed by frontman Dave Grohl. Set to premiere on October 17, the eight-episode series will highlight eight iconic studios located in eight U.S. cities (Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington, D.C.) where the group recorded eight songs for the LP.
"Sonic Highways" was co-produced by Butch Vig and Foo Fighters. The 44-minute set is already available for pre-order in CD and vinyl. The vinyl version will come with nine different covers including eight variants themed for the eight cities. Fans can pick their favorite cover here.
"This album is instantly recognizable as a Foo Fighters record, but there's something deeper and more musical to it," Grohl said in a release. "I think that these cities and these people influenced us to stretch out and explore new territory, without losing our 'sound.' "
"Sonic Highways" Tracklist:
- "Something From Nothing"
- "The Feast and the Famine"
- "What Did I Do?/God as My Witness"
- "In the Clear"
