Foo Fighters Sonic Highways on 180g LP

New Butch Vig-Produced Album Shares its Title with the Dave Grohl-Directed 8-Episode HBO Series Described as a Love Letter to the History of American Music

9 Different Covers for this Title / Stock Received & Shipped will be Completely Random

Sonic Highways is the Foo Fighters eighth full-length album of all-new material and the long-awaited follow-up to their 4x-Grammy-winning, international #1 Wasting Light from 2011. The vinyl release comes in an assortment of nine different covers including eight variants each themed for one of the cities in which the album was recorded: Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.

Though not a soundtrack album by any stretch, Sonic Highways shares its title with the Dave Grohl-directed eight-episode HBO series he describes as a love letter to the history of American music and premiering in October 2014. For the album and series, Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear wrote and recorded one song in each of these eight cities, delving into the local musical currents: how each region shaped these musicians in their formative years, and in turn the impact those people had on the cultural fabric of their hometowns. 

All songs feature local legends sitting in, with every lyric written in an unprecedented experimental style: Dave held off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews for the HBO series, and other local personalities who became part of the process. Produced by Butch Vig and Foo Fighters, the new 8-song set is being released on Roswell Records/RCA Records and clocks in at just over 44 minutes.

“This album is instantly recognizable 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’.” - Dave Grohl
