Foo Fighters cover Pink Floyd classic on new EP

The Foo Fighters cover the 1975 Pink Floyd classic, “Have A Cigar”, on the latest EP from the band’s ongoing archive series.

It’s one of five tracks on the newly-issued “01999925”, which sees the band revisit material recorded during sessions for their 1999 album, “There Is Nothing Left To Lose.”

The “Wish You Were Here” Pink Floyd favorite and a cover of The Obsessed's “Iron And Stone” are joined by the original song, “Make A Bet” – all three originally appeared as b-sides to the “Learn To Fly” single.

The project also includes performances of “Ain't It The Life” and “Floaty” from a November 1999 live studio session in the Netherlands.

The Foo Fighters have already confirmed some 2020 live dates, including Boston Calling in May and three European festivals – Austria’s Nova Rock, Italy’s iDays and Portugals Rock In Rio Lisboa – with more expected to be announced soon.
