Foo Fighters stream new album ‘Sonic Highways’

Band's eighth studio album is released this week (November 10)

Foo Fighters are airing their new album online.

‘Sonic Highways’ is released this week (November 10) and can be heard now at iTunes Radio.

‘Sonic Highways’ is Foo Fighters’ eighth studio album. Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard, Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen and Walsh are among the guests who feature on the record.


Speaking to NME recently, drummer Taylor Hawkins revealed that he thinks new album ‘Sonic Highways’ is as close to being perfect as the band could have possibly made it. “We like the way our band sounds, naturally,” he said. “I want drums to sound like drums as opposed to a drum machine. We kept it as humanly perfect as possible but nothing more. It’s as perfect as we can be, which is not perfect.”

Foo Fighters speak to NME for a major feature in this week’s issue, which is on newsstands and available digitally now, in which they discuss the making of ‘Sonic Highways’, the possibility of playing Glastonbury next year and the band’s legacy.

Dave Grohl and co are the current favourites to headline next year’s Glastonbury after Grohl himself told NME that he is interested in the slot. Fleetwood Mac remain among the list of potential headliners despite Mick Fleetwood stating outright that the band will definitely not be performing at next year’s festival.

“There’s a real gamble on for Foo Fighters to play at Glastonbury, but at this stage it looks like a combination of hopeful fans and those following the rumour-mill. Perhaps given the weight of money we’ve seen, there may be some truth in the rumours,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke in a statement last week (November 7).
