Dave Grohl teases Foo Fighters' 'party album' Medicine at Midnight

Foo Fighters’ new record ‘Medicine at Midnight’ is their “Saturday night party album”.

Dave Grohl and co gave fans the first taste of their delayed 10th LP with the lead single, ‘Shame Shame’, which they debuted on ‘Saturday Night Live’ over the weekend.

And now, the ‘Learn to Fly’ hitmaker has teased that fans can expect a totally different and “fresh” sound on their follow-up to 2017’s ‘Concrete + Gold’.

Speaking to NME.com, Grohl said of their upcoming nine-track collection: “Since it’s our 10th record and 25th anniversary, we decided years ago that we wanted to do something that sounded fresh. We’ve made so many different types of album, we’ve done acoustic things, we’ve done punk-rock things, mid-tempo Americana type of things. We have a lot of albums to fall back on, so you just have to go with our gut feeling and I thought instead of making some mellow adult album, I thought ‘F*** that, let’s make a party album.'”

Asked what type of “party” it is, the former Nirvana drummer explained: “A lot of our favorite records have these big grooves and riffs. I hate to call it a funk or dance record, but it’s more energetic in a lot of ways than anything we’ve ever done and it was really designed to be that Saturday night party album. It was written and sequenced in a way that you put on, and nine songs later you’ll just put it on again. Y’know, songs like ‘Making A Fire’. To me that’s rooted in Sly & The Family Stone grooves, but amplified in the way that the Foo Fighters do it.”

Dave Grohl on Going in a Different Direction with Upcoming ‘Party Album’ Medicine At Midnight

Click here to read the full article on SPIN.

Many Foo Fighters fans were disappointed when their favorite rock band had to cancel all their 25th-anniversary plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, after debuting “Shame Shame” live on Saturday Night Live over the weekend, the Foo Fighters are officially back with a record that fans might not expect from the lineup.

“We have a lot of albums to fall back on, so you just have to go with our gut feeling and I thought instead of making some mellow adult album, I thought ‘Fuck that, let’s make a party album’,” Dave Grohl told NME.

More from SPIN:

Grohl said Medicine at Midnight is “more energetic in a lot of ways than anything we’ve ever done and it was really designed to be that Saturday night party album.”

Without giving too much away, he said that the title track is reminiscent of David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance,” but Foo purists will be happy to know that there is one song, “Waiting on a War,” which is “the most recognisable [sic] song off the album as Foo Fighters.”

With the album set to release in February, NME couldn’t help but ask about playing the new music live.

While Grohl would love nothing more than playing the new material live, they don’t feel it’s safe to do that just yet.

“Until that can happen safely,” he said, “we’re just gonna have to fucking knock it out in the rehearsal room.”

Grohl emphasized the importance of live music in an essay he wrote for The Atlantic in May. But it seems that between their performances on SNL and then getting back in the rehearsal room with the band, Grohl is looking forward to the day they can put on a live show.

“To be honest, being away from it for six or seven months,” he said, “not seeing the guys and having instruments in our laps, getting back to the rehearsal place and playing together to no one was just the best feeling in the world. When we get back and once it happens that we walk on stage to an audience, I have a feeling it’ll be the best show and the best feeling the band’s ever had.”

Grohl previously teased that David Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’ era was a huge influence on the record, and now he’s revealed the title track in particular pays homage to the 1983 hit from the late music legend’s iconic album of the same name – which was co-produced by ‘Groove Master’ Nile Rodgers.

The rock icon added: “Then there’s ‘Medicine At Midnight’, that’s our David Bowie‘s ‘Let Dance’. It’s a huge f****** rock song that I imagine opening every festival from heer to Melbourne! Every song is a little bit different but they all have something that feels fresh and I like it!”

‘Medicine at Midnight’ is released on February 5, 2021.

On the show, the Dave Grohl-led band played new track ‘Shame Shame’, which leads their new album ‘Medicine At Midnight’.

The album is set to come out on February 5, 2021. See the band debut ‘Shame Shame’, listen to its studio version, and check out the album’s tracklist and artwork below.

Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters have been teasing their upcoming 10th album across this week. Yesterday, they shared a teaser of new music after eagle-eyed fans spotted the band’s ‘FF’ logo in various locations alongside an ‘X’, the Roman numeral for 10. A black-and-white clip of a burning coffin has also appeared when Spotify users play certain Foos tracks.

Foo Fighters last released a full-length record with ‘Concrete And Gold’ in 2017, and confirmed in February that they had finished recording its follow-up. Back in May, Dave Grohl likened the new album to David Bowie’s 1983 LP ‘Let’s Dance’.

“It’s filled with anthemic, huge, sing-along rock songs,” he explained. “It’s kind of like a dance record, but not an EDM, disco, modern dance record. It’s got groove. To me, it’s our David Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’ record. That’s what we wanted to make, we wanted to make this really up, fun record.”

Foo Fighters Release ‘Shame Shame,’ Announce New Album Medicine at Midnight

Click here to read the full article on SPIN.

After a week of teasing activity. Foo Fighters debuted their new single “Shame Shame” on Saturday Night Live. The song is off the band’s 10th album, which is titled Medicine at Midnight, which is slated to be released on Feb. 5, 2021. The album is produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters. The band’s last album, Concrete and Gold, was released in 2017.

“Shame Shame” is available to stream now, listen to the studio version below.

More from SPIN:

It was supposed to be a busy year for Dave Grohl and company. Grohl told Bill Simmons earlier this year that the band’s album was done and that he planned on releasing a documentary as well. Foo Fighters were slated to hit the road for a string of dates in support of their 25th anniversary, however, the pandemic changed those plans. Grohl reflected on the band’s anniversary in July and being Nirvana’s “fifth drummer.”

Last week, the band shared a goofy spoof commercial mocking Grohl’s addiction to coffee and they also appeared at a virtual show in support of Joe Biden, performing “Times Like These.” They also released the Live on the Radio 1996 EP last month. The release followed the launch of the band’s People of Rock and Roll digital zine. And don’t forget that Grohl is in an ongoing musical battle with drumming prodigy, Nandi Bushell.

Preorder the album here. Check out the tracklisting for Medicine at Midnight below:

Making a Fire
Shame Shame
Cloudspotter
Waiting on a War
Medicine at Midnight
No Son of Mine

Is New Foo Fighters Album Called ‘Medicine at Midnight’?

Fans are speculating that the title of the Foo Fighters’ 10th album will be Medicine at Midnight, as Dave Grohl’s band continued a program of teasers.

They posted a 32-second audio clip featuring a drum beat to Twitter after an appearance for this weekend on Saturday Night Live was announced. The Shazam app apparently confirms that the track is “Shame Shame” from a Foo Fighters album titled Medicine at Midnight, according to Uproxx.

The text “FF X” – possibly referring to the Foo Fighters’ 10th album – has been seen on a building in Los Angeles, and a projection in Sherman Oaks displayed the logo followed by a burning coffin. Flames were also featured in the image that accompanied the audio clip. The coffin appears when the songs “The Pretender” and “These Days” are played on Spotify.

Fans already knew that the follow-up to 2017’s Concrete and Gold was complete.

“It’s filled with anthemic, huge, sing-along rock songs. It’s kind of like a dance record, but not an EDM, disco, modern dance record. It’s got groove,” Grohl confirmed to NME in May. “To me, it’s our David Bowie’s Let’s Dance record. That’s what we wanted to make: We wanted to make this really up, fun record.”

Grohl previously described the work as “unlike anything we’ve ever done,” saying “there are choruses on this record that 50-fucking-thousand people are gonna sing, and it’s gonna bring everyone’s fucking hearts together in that moment. And that’s what it’s all about.”
