IF YOU'RE A fan of the Foo, the band's 10th studio album might sound a little different. You can thank David Bowie for that. And Abba. And Lemmy Kilmister. Oh, and Grand Funk Railroad.
After 25 years, frontman Dave Grohl isn't shy about experimenting with the band's signature sound. Producer Greg Kurstin is back for his second tour of duty. Known for his pop chops (Adele, Pink, Maren Morris), Kurstin brought a brighter tone to the guitar-heavy band's 2017 album "Concrete and Gold."
"Medicine at Midnight" continues the exploration of influences. Admitting he wanted a dance record, Grohl channels Bowie on "Shame Shame" while giving Kilmister's Motörhead a nod with the thundering "No Son of Mine."
Foo Fighters still punch hard in their weight class as a rock band on this album. Signature guitar riffs and crushing drums are everywhere, but there's a few new hooks along the way.
- Track 1: Making a Fire
- Track 4: Waiting on a War
