The Foos are fighting fit with Medicine at Midnight, their tenth and latest album.
Following delays due to COVID, Foo Fighters dropped the nine-track LP at midnight — of course — featuring the previously-released “Shame Shame,” “No Son of Mine” and “Waiting on a War.”
The Foos reunited with master pop producer Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia) on the LP, which was completed before the pandemic shut everything down. Finding the right time to unleash it, that was a challenge. “There was this series of conversations like, ‘Should we do it now?’ ‘It’s not a good time.’ ‘What about now?’ ‘No, no,'” recounts frontman Dave Grohl.
Medicine was engineered by Darrell Thorp and mixed by Mark “Spike” Stent.
In the same interview with USA Today, drummer Taylor Hawkins says the result is “like two records in one”. He adds, “you’ve got your disco, dancey, groove-oriented album, and then other half is pretty traditional Foo Fighters rock music. So if you don’t like the dancey bits, just fast forward.”
Medicine at Midnight is the followup to 2017’s Concrete and Gold, which hit No. 1 in the U.S., U.K. and around the globe.
