A new US-only preview trailer has been made available
Foo Fighters have unveiled a host of famous musicians who will make an appearance in their forthcoming Sonic Highways documentary.
Dolly Parton, Public Enemy star Chuck D, Willie Nelson and LL Cool J are among the names mentioned for inclusion, while the Beastie Boys’ Mike D, Joan Jett, Heart, US singer Bonnie Raitt, Cheap trick’s Rick Nielson, Gary Clark Jr and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band complete the list of guest appearances. Many of these stars will also feature on the affiliated ‘Sonic Highways’ LP as well, however the exact details of these guest spots are yet to be clarified.
As Consequence of Sound reports, the news was unveiled via a new, extended five-minute trailer for the program – which will premiere in the US on October 17 and in the UK on October 26. The trailer is currently unavailable to stream outside of America.
In the new preview, however, it is reported that the band tease two new tracks including ‘Something From Nothing’, which is described as “a toned-down jam that seems to cut away right before a big breakout” featuring lyrics by Dave Grohl including “Here lies a city on fire / singing along / the arsonist choir / and I here I go.” The second track, ‘Feast and Famine’, features “Grohl screaming out the song’s title after a hearty ‘Amen!'”
It was recently reported, meanwhile, that Sonic Highways would be shown on BBC Four and BBC iPlayer in the UK. The eight episodes will be split between the two platforms, with BBC Four showing episodes one, two, seven and eight and BBC iPlayer showing the others exclusively online.
‘Sonic Highways’, the album, will be released on November 10.
‘Sonic Highways’ tracklist:
‘Something From Nothing’
‘The Feast And The Famine’
‘What Did I Do?/God As My Witness’
‘In The Clear’
‘I Am A River’
