fans have been patiently awaiting new material from the upcoming Concrete and Gold
since it was announced late last month, and finally have another new song to listen to (well, sort of).
The band premiered the new track, titled "Dirty Water," live in Paris this week. Like some of the best Foo Fighters songs, it starts out relatively laid back with gently strummed guitars and Dave Grohl's quietly sung vocals, but eventually explodes into an all-out headbanger (much like "Run," the first single off of Concrete and Gold
While there hasn't been an official audio release of the song yet, a fan managed to capture a pretty well-recorded video of the band's live performance of "Dirty Water" at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris. Also, we do know that the song, as well as the rest of the album, will be produced by Greg Kurstin, who is notable for producing pop tracks by Adele, Sia, and Halsey, as well as his work with his indie pop band The Bird and the Bee. It should definitely be interesting to see how this collaboration between a respected heavy rock band and a talented pop producer/performer works out, but if "Dirty Water" is any indication, we can expect the same old epic sound that Foo Fighters always delivers.
Concrete and Gold
comes out on September 15.
