VIDEO: Foo Fighters release The Sky Is A Neighborhood

The Foo Fighters have released a video for the track “The Sky Is A Neighborhood”, from their forthcoming album, “Concrete And Gold.”

The Dave Grohl-directed clip sees the band performing the song and features the rocker’s two daughters, 11-year-old Violet and 8-year-old Harper.

"One night I was lying out looking up at stars," recalls Grohl. "Just imagining all of these stars as places that have life on them as well, and I decided that the sky is a neighborhood, that we need to keep our s**t together in order to survive in this universe full of life. But I had no music yet. I just had the title. So every day I would walk around, kind of humming this thing in my head."

In sync with the video’s release, the Foo Fighters are launching a constellation viewer, enabling users to transform to their phone into a tool for exploring the sky in their neighborhood.

Using your phone, go to to configure a realistic constellation map in the viewer's 3D sphere, then let it identify the constellations in your night sky accompanied by a Foo Fighters soundtrack.

Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins premiered "The Sky Is A Neighborhood" with a live acoustic version in May, and the band delivered its full live debut during their June 16 performance at Iceland's Secret Solstice Festival.

The track follows the lead single, “Run”, as the second tune issued in advance of the September 15 release of “Concrete And Gold.”

The Foo Fighters’ ninth album was co-produced by the band and Greg Kurstin (Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Sia) and mixed by Darrell Thorp (Beck, Radiohead).

The group will launch the project with a fall US tour that will begin with their own Cal Jam 17 festival at Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino, CA on October 7, which will feature more than a dozen acts, including Queens of the Stone Age, Cage The Elephant, Liam Gallagher, Royal Blood and more.
