The Foo Fighters have issued “Something From Nothing” as the lead single from their forthcoming album, “Sonic Highways.”
Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Neilsen plays on the tune, which was recorded at Nirvana producer Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio studio in Chicago.
"Chicago's the place where I saw my first show,” explains Dave Grohl. “The first time I ever saw a live band play was at this little bar called the Cubby Bear right across the street from Wrigley Field. It was just like 'I want to do this for the rest of my life.' So the idea of the song, and the episode, is that once you find that spark and inspiration, that begins your path in life, for whatever it is you want to do."
The Foo Fighters will celebrate the launch of their HBO series, “Sonic Highways”, by performing at The Cubby Bear in Chicago and streaming the concert online.
The 8-part HBO series debuts on Friday, October 17 at 11:00 p.m. EST.
The program chronicles the making of the band’s forthcoming album of the same name, out November 10.
HBO will team up with Facebook to present "Foo Fighters Sonic Highways: Live From The Cubby Bear", streaming the concert to US fans via the HBO Facebook page starting live at midnight EST here.
