Foo Fighters' new album, Concrete and Gold, is due this Friday, September 15th. The band have not only been gearing up for its release, but have also been very active in collaborations, like the humorous Rick Astley pairing and the on-stage appearance of Jane's Addiction's Perry Farrell.


Concrete and Gold

Foo Fighters never gave in to their plans to take an indefinite hiatus back in 2016, and now Foo fans are waiting to embrace the 9th studio album from the band. The forthcoming album, Concrete and Gold, was actually expected to be Sonic Highways 2. This follows the band's 8th album, Sonic Highways, which was a involved lead-singer Dave Grohl traveling around the world, meeting with artists and musicians from various countries and then writing songs based on that experience. The band's 7th album, Wasting Light, was a garage rock album that was recorded in Grohl's garage. With distinct concepts behind the last two albums, perhaps Concrete and Gold will have one too. 

While recording the album, Grohl was also barbecuing for the recording studio every night – using it as an opportunity to connect with other artists. An article from NME explains that 'getting involved in the social aspect of the recording studio also contributed to multiple guest appearances on the record.' This means that we can expect other artists appearing on the tracks, possibly even some sausage inspired melodies.
