Foo Fighters Reveal 'Sonic Highways' Track List, Artwork
The Foo Fighters have officially announced the details of their eighth studio album: Sonic Highways will be released worldwide on Nov. 10 through Roswell Records/RCA Records.
Produced by Butch Vig and the Foo Fighters, Sonic Highways' eight songs were recorded separately in eight different U.S. cities, and the vinyl edition of the album will come in an assortment for nine different covers, with eight variants for each the cities in which the Foos spent time. The Sonic Highways CD and 180 gram vinyl LP are currently available for pre-order.
"This album is instantly recognizable as a Foo Fighters record, but there's something deeper and more musical to it," frontman Dave Grohl says in a press statement. "I think that these cities and these people influenced us to stretch out and explore new territory, without losing our 'sound.'"
The follow-up to 2011's Wasting Light was previewed last week with an eight-second snippet of music, which featured Grohl screaming "All rise!" and using all eight seconds to convey the two syllables. Sonic Highways is also the name of the eight-episode HBO series chronicling the road-trippin' creation of the album, which will premiere on Oct. 17.
