At a show in Greece last night, the Foo Fighters debuted yet another song from their upcoming album, Concrete and Gold. “Arrows” is the fifth song from the record that they’ve performed live ahead of its release. You can watch them perform the new song above.
The song followed their performance of the other four new songs they’ve recently debuted: “The Sky is a Neighborhood,” “La Dee Da,” “Sunday Rain” and “Dirty Water.” A sixth song, “Run,” was released as the album’s first single and video.
According to NME, the show, which took place at the Acropolis, was filmed for Landmarks Live in Concert, a TV series hosted by Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith. It also featured a return of frontman Dave Grohl‘s daughter, Harper, taking over the drums on a cover of Queen‘s “We Will Rock You.”
Concrete and Gold, the Foo Fighters’ ninth studio album, is due out Sept. 15. In a recent interview with BBC Radio 6 Music, Grohl explained the concept behind the album. ““It’s also the title of the last song. There’s sort of a theme within the eleven songs that goes from beginning to end, so this is kind of the resolve of the entire record. The chorus [of the song ‘Concrete And Gold’] says, ‘I have an engine made of gold, something so beautiful / The world will never know / Our roots are stronger than you know / Up through the concrete we will grow.’ It’s kind of beautiful.”
