Foo Fighters have announced a brand new record today (19 April) titled But Here We Are. The first single, Rescued, introduces the band’s new era following the tragic passing of drummer Taylor Hawkins.
But Here We Are is the Foo Fighters’ 11th album, and is being described as “the first chapter of the band’s new life”. It will be released on 2 June this Summer.
In a press release, the new record is said to draw on the sounds of their 1995 self-titled debut album. It also explains that Rescued lyrically shows themes of “rage and sorrow to serenity and acceptance, and myriad points in between.”
Listen to Rescued below:
The album’s tracklist is as follows:
- Under You
- Hearing Voices
- But Here We Are
- The Glass
- Nothing At All
- Show Me How
- Beyond Me
- The Teacher
But Here We Are has been produced by longtime collaborator Greg Kurstin and the band themselves. It’s set to be “a brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything [the band] endured over the last year” as “a testament to the healing powers of music, friendship and family”.
Taylor Hawkins sadly passed away on 25 March 2022. Memorial concerts took place in London and LA to pay tribute to the drummer last September. It has not been revealed who is drumming on the new record, or who’ll be drumming for the band on their upcoming tour dates, which kick off in May.
