It's happening. The Foo Fighters have announced a new album called But Here We Are, which was recorded following the tragic death of longtime drummer Taylor Hawkins in March 2022. The record is the Foos' 11th studio full-length overall and their first since 2021's Medicine at Midnight, marking their quickest turnaround since the two-year gap between 2005's In Your Honor and 2007's Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace. A press release also describes the LP as "the first chapter of the band's new life."
Produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, But Here We Are is due out June 2nd on Roswell Records/RCA Records, but today (April 19th) Dave Grohl and Co. offered up its emotional lead single "Rescued." Listen above via YouTube.
Musically, the song delivers everything fans have come to know and love about the Foos — particularly, big guitars and even bigger anthemic hooks — while the lyrics wax poetic about a deeply meaningful experience that comes to a sudden halt and the yearning "to be rescued." "It came in a flash/It came out of nowhere," Grohl sings poignantly at the start. "It happened so fast/And then it was over."
But Here We Are is available for preorder now. See the cover art and tracklist below.
