Earlier, Foo Fighters member Chris Shiflett tweeted excitedly about Nancy Wilson using his guitar, writing: “Whoa – Nancy Wilson is playing my Flying V!!!!” Foo Fighters had kicked off their week-long live residency on Monday by covering Black Sabbath’s ‘War Pigs’ with Zac Brown.
Foo Fighters’ eighth album, ‘Sonic Highways’, will be released on November 10. As previously revealed to NME, Eagles’ Joe Walsh, Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen are among the guests who feature on the record.
Sonic Highways, the documentary taking viewers behind the scenes as Foo Fighters record their new album in different studios around America, will air in the UK on BBC Four beginning Sunday, October 26. The eight-episode series will then be split between BBC Four and BBC iPlayer, with episodes three to six available exclusively online. The final two episodes will then be shown on BBC Four.
Each episode is set in a different city and studio as the band record a new song for their forthcoming ‘Sonic Highways’ album. Over the course of the series, Foo Fighters visit Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington DC. Each episode culminates with the band performing the track they created in each of the eight cities. Nancy and Ann Wilson are set to appear in the series.
Speaking about the album, frontman Dave Grohl is quoted as saying: “This album is instantly recognisable as a Foo Fighters record, but there’s something deeper and more musical to it. I think that these cities and these people influenced us to stretch out and explore new territory, without losing our ‘sound’.”
The ‘Sonic Highways’ tracklisting is:
‘Something From Nothing’
‘The Feast And The Famine’
‘What Did I Do?/God As My Witness’
‘In The Clear’
‘I Am A River’
