The Foo Fighters have issued a lyric video for “Something From Nothing”, the lead single from their forthcoming album, “Sonic Highways.”
The footage was featured in the debut episode of the band’s 8-part HBO series of the same name, which premiered last Friday.
Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Neilsen appears in the clip and 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 Foos delivered the live debut of "Something From Nothing" on Friday, the final night of their week-long residency at The Late Show with David Letterman; Neilsen was on hand to lend a hand – watch it here.
