Foo Fighters have today revealed that their new album will be titled Sonic Highways.
The LP is slated for released on the 10th of November, with the 180-gram vinyl edition featuring nine covers, including one for each of the eight cities the band recorded in for the record.
Frontman Dave Grohl has revealed that the album will feature guest appearances by a number of notable musicians, including Chuck D, Carrie Underwood, Gary Clark, Jr., Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen, Butthole Surfers’ Gibby Haynes and Joe Walsh. He has also revealed that the album will be the Foos’ longest. “When you get Joe Walsh with you out in the desert, it’s not going to be a three-minute pop single.”
The complete tracklist for Sonic Highways is as follows:
Grohl has said in conversation with Rolling Stone that the album had originally been planned to be even bigger, taking in recording locations the world over. However, as soon as it became apparent that the plan would not be financially viable, the band instead decided to focus on their homeland: “We’re an American band,” he said. “We wouldn’t be the band we are if it wasn’t for the cities here and their music.”
