Foo Fighters have shared their new tune “No Son of Mine,” the second single from their approaching album Medicine at Midnight.
“This is the kind of song that just resides in all of us and if it makes sense at the time, we let it out,” Dave Grohl said in a statement, “Lyrically it’s meant to poke at the hypocrisy of self righteous leaders, people that are guilty of committing the crimes they’re supposedly against…”
Foo Fighters declared the new record, the development to 2017’s Concrete and Gold, when they appeared “Shame Shame” on Saturday Night Live in November.
They played out the track on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert later in the month, where Dave Grohl likewise discussed the band’s 25th anniversary. Medication at Midnight shows up on February 5.
During Hanukkah, Grohl and Medicine at Midnight maker Greg Kurstin did a series of covers that included Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage,” Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” and Peaches’ “Fuck the Pain Away” with a visitor appearance from the singer herself.
