Foo Fighters Release Trailer for ‘Sonic Highways’ HBO Series + Preview New Song
‘Sonic Highways,’ the eighth studio album from the Foo Fighters, is easily one of the most anticipated albums of 2014. Tied to a Foo-specific HBO documentary series, it has already set high expectations for fans across the world. Those expectations may have just risen a little more as the band previews the brand new tune, ‘Something From Nothing,’ in the show’s recently released trailer.
For the making of the new LP, Dave Grohl and company traveled across the states to record the tracks in various studios. As the frontman explains in the trailer above, “I really believe the environment in which you write or record an album influences the musical result.” There’s no doubt ‘Sonic Highways’ will be a record chock full of several influences.
As for the series, the trailer shows it will be much more than just a documentary on the making of the album; with appearances by a wide range of artists — from Willie Nelson to Macklemore — the TV show will examine musical histories across the nation.
The series is set to debut on Friday, Oct. 17 at 11 PM ET. The album itself will drop worldwide on Nov. 10. For more details, visit the band’s official website here.
