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.
