Foo Fighters are making sure 2021 gets off to a rocking start.
Dave Grohl and company have released a new song called “No Son of Mine,” which will appear on the group’s upcoming 10th studio album, Medicine at Midnight. You can download the track now via digital outlets.
Under normal circumstances, you would’ve already heard “No Son of Mine” — and the rest of Medicine at Midnight — back in 2020, but the record was delayed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It was almost exactly a year ago that we finished recording our ‘new’ record Medicine at Midnight, with a massive world tour planned that would have taken us around the globe celebrating our 25th anniversary as a band,” Grohl writes in a statement. “But, well…you know…”
After initially hoping to wait out the pandemic, the Foos ultimately realized “our music is meant to be heard, whether it’s in a festival field with 50,000 of our closest friends, or alone in your living room on a Saturday night with a stiff cocktail.”
“As we say goodbye (f*** you) to 2020 and flip the calendar page to 2021, let’s ring in the New year with a new rocker, ‘No Son of Mine,"” Grohl writes. “Pour a drink, turn it up, close your eyes and imagine that festival field blowing up to this.”
“Because it f***ing will,” he adds.
Medicine at Midnight arrives February 5. It also includes the lead single “Shame Shame.”
