Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways
Sonic Highways is more than just new music from one of America’s most revered rock bands, it’s an event. Each of the eight songs was recorded in a different studio in a different city, with the process being chronicled on the new HBO documentary series Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways. Here, experimental techniques and a more epic sweep fortifies the band’s aggressive, guitar-driven sound, resulting in the band’s most ambitious record yet.
By recording each song in a different city, the Foos were able to draw upon local musical currents and regional talent to help influence their songwriting. The result is, as the band puts it, “a love letter to the history of American music.”
Sample Guest Collaborators
- Zac Brown on “Congregation”
- Joan Jett on “I Am a River”
- Gary Clark, Jr. on “What Did I Do? / God As My Witness”
- New Orleans Preservation Hall Jazz Band on “In the Clear”
Quotes About the Album
“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, Foo Fighters frontman
“We like the way our band sounds, naturally. I want drums to sound like drums, as opposed to a drum machine. We kept it as humanly perfect as possible but nothing more. It’s as perfect as we can be, which is not perfect.” ~ Taylor Hawkins, Foo Fighters drummer
