Faith No More Debut First Single In 17 Years, ‘Motherf–ker’
Seventeen years after their 1998 breakup, metal leaders Faith No More have returned with a brand-new song, ‘Motherf--ker.’ The track -- which the band premiered on Rolling Stone today (Nov. 19) -- is the first single to emerge from their forthcoming, yet-to-be-named eighth album.
Take a listen to the dark, foreboding track below, and you’ll hear sinister-sounding spoken verses and choruses that lift off in theatrical fashion.
The upcoming album is produced by Faith No More bassist Bill Gould, recorded at the band’s Oakland studio and will be released on their Reclamation Records label.
“It feels apt that the first track we’re releasing is ‘Motherf--ker,’ a song about accountability,” keyboardist Roddy Bottum said. “Basically, we’ve created, recorded and mixed a new body of work by ourselves and we’re releasing it on our own label. It’s a huge deal for us to only have ourselves to answer to at this point in our career and the song is about that, where the buck stops via the basic imagery of foie gras production, bondage … y’know, stuff like that.”
