The documentary series will chronicle the band’s city hopping road trips to record the album – don’t miss it at 11 P.M. tonight! We mentioned a little earlier today that the show this evening will feature the first ever in-concert performance of the new single “Something from Nothing” from the band’s forthcoming album titled “Sonic Highways”, which is due out November 10. Go ahead and listen to the song in full, courtesy of Foo Fighters’ YouTube page.
David and the boys never seem to disappoint, and by listening to the first track available from the album we are more excited than ever! Daniel Kreps from the Rolling Stone says:
“Many of the album’s lyrics are based on Grohl’s interviews with its respective city’s musicians. The lyric “Here lies a city on fire… it started with a spark, and burned into the dark” seems to be inspired by the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, an incident that was also the subject of the Beach Boys’ Smile track “Mrs. O’Leary’s Cow.”Given the involvement of producer Steve Albini in some capacity on the Chicago-inspired track, it feels like a song borne out of the Windy City: The drums explode with Albini’s patented crash, while the soaring guitar assault is reminiscent of Chicago’s own Smashing Pumpkins.”
Excited yet!? Kreps’ description of the song left us with a mouth-watering thirst for a solid rock album from the Foo’s that is promising to knock us off our feet. For those of you lucky enough to attend the concert tonight, wave at the cameras, we will check in via Facebook.
