Foo Fighters Stream ‘Sonic Highways’ Album
The day is finally upon us as Foo Fighters are letting listeners in on their full ‘Sonic Highways’ album. The group had already previewed the tracks ‘Something From Nothing,’ ‘The Feast and the Famine,’ ‘Congregation’ and ‘What Did I Do? / God as My Witness’ in advance of the new disc, but now they’ve decided to stream the disc in full at iTunes Radio.
You can now check out the remaining tracks on the effort. The group gave a preview of ‘Outside’ to the BBC last week. That track was recorded in Joshua Tree, Calif. with Joe Walsh making a guest appearance. Other new songs that can be heard include ‘In The Clear,’ featuring the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, ‘Subterranean,’ which has Death Cab for Cutie‘s Ben Gibbard and the album closing ‘I Am a River,’ which includes old pal Joan Jett.
‘Sonic Highways’ has been a massive undertaking for Foo Fighters as not only is it an album, but a full-on project where the band visited several of America’s top music markets and visited with some of the musicians who helped craft the music scenes. Fans have been watching it play out during Foo Fighters’ ‘Sonic Highways’ HBO documentary series.
Speaking with NME about the project, Dave Grohl says that he feels he would never try to replicate the ‘Sonic Highways’ experiment in other country such as England. He explained, “I’m never f—ing doing it again! But I can imagine there are bands from countries all over the world that could do the same thing. England’s a great example of another country where each city has regional relevance. I think that every country could have its own ‘Sonic Highways’ series. England could definitely have it.”
Foo Fighters’ ‘Sonic Highways’ album is available at this location.
