Foo Fighters have unleashed a brand new third single, ‘Waiting On A war’ from their forthcoming album ‘Medicine At Midnight’ – you can hear the new song below.
The latest single audio follows their previously released two songs – ‘Shame Shame’ and ‘No Son of Mine’, of the new record which is due out on February 5.
As stated in a statement from frontman Dave Grohl, the song is written for her 11-year old daughter, “Last fall, as I was taking my daughter to school, she turned to me and she asked me: ‘Daddy is going to be a war?” Dave wrote. “My heart sank in my chest as I looked into her innocent eyes because I realized that she was now living under that same dark cloud of a hopeless future that I had felt 40 years ago.”
Dave continues, “As a child growing up in the suburbs of Washington D.C., I was always afraid of war. I had nightmares of missiles in the sky and soldiers in my backyard, most likely brought upon by the political tension of the early 1980s and my proximity to the Nation’s Capitol. My youth was spent under the dark cloud of a hopeless future.”
In addition, today is Dave Grohl’s 52nd birthday, as Foo Fighters will perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Happy birthday, Dave!
